Weston will start the process of finding a replacement for Fire Chief Edmund M. Walker, who is leaving the department to take the lead job at the Massachusetts Fire Academy.
Town Human Resource Director Lisa Yanakakis said that the town has hired a consulting firm specializing in public safety to organize the recruiting process. The firm, Municipal Resources Inc., is based in Meredith, N.H. Yanakakis hopes that they'll find a replacement as soon as possible, but hopefully within six months.
In the meantime, former Newton Fire Chief Joseph Daniele will be serving as Interim Chief Fire Administrator. State law prohibits anyone over 65 years old from serving as a firefighter, so Daniele will handle only administrative duties. He was to start the job today.
