Batavia starts search for new fire chief

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, Batavia FIre Department.

Batavia is looking for a new fire chief.

The city ran an ad in the Democrat and Chronicle over the weekend offering the position with a salary range of $68,000 and $82,350 per year.

City Manager Jason Molino told WBTA that the new chief needs to be a leader who isn't inflexible.

"We’re looking for a fire chief who’s got an open mind, is eager and has the enthusiasm to move the department forward for the best interest of the community," Molino said.

Interim Chief Ralph Hyde came out of retirement in May 2009 to fill a vacancy created by the departure of Tom Dillon, who was prohibited by the state from drawing a pension and a full-time salary.
