Milford City Council Votes Down Recommendation To Re-Appoint Fire Chief

Mon 7-8-2019

(Milford)-- The Milford City Council this (Monday) evening voted down a recommendation from firefighters to reappoint Jim Carpenter as Fire Chief. 

Councilman Andy Yungbluth made the motion denying the recommendation, siting concern over expenditures by the Fire Department and concerns he says he's been getting from citizens. 

The motion calls for the current assistant chief, Doug Hanna, to serve as acting Fire Chief. 

The motion was approved four to zero with councilman Chris Hinshaw abstaining from the vote. 

Neither Carpenter nor any other members of the Fire Department were present at the meeting.
