The Independent Staff

Interviews have begun for Brooke-Alvinston’s new fire chief.
The municipality decided earlier this year to merge the two volunteer departments in Alvinston and Inwood under one department and an administrative fire chief after a report from the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office pointed out a number of discrepancies in the way the departments handle things such as training.
Mayor Don McGugan say about 12 applications were received for the position.
Wednesday, town staff and a consultant were expected to begin interviewing seven of the candidates.
McGugan expects it will be at least six weeks until the new chief is hired.
