Fire Chief Salzmann has announced his retirement effective February 7th, but he will use his remaining vacation time so as to be out of the office as of now. I wish him good luck in his retirement.
The next question concerns who Mayor Gallo will select as the next Chief. The next in line is Assistant Chief Rea. Gallo is not obligated to select him and the new Mayor has shown that he runs the show his own way. Time will tell if "C Rea" gets the nod or if Mayor Gallo chooses to go out on a limb with a different selection.
