Sheridan Fire Chief Resigns To Save City Money

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — Sheridan’s fire chief and emergency services director says he has a way to save the city money — eliminate his job.

The Sheridan Press (http://bit.ly/ygqUih ) reports that in a letter addressed to Mayor Dave Kinskey on Thursday, Fire Chief Patrick Reitz says his decision to resign is based on budgetary needs of the city and the fire department, and he recommends that the position not be refilled.

Reitz said in a news release the department can be operated using a single chief, instead of the current fire chief/emergency services director and division chief of operations positions. He recommends the current division chief of operations be appointed interim head of the department.

Kinskey says “if we can get by with one fire chief instead of two, that is what we need to do.”
