Fire Chief candidates community event

Wednesday, August 24, 2022

We will ask in-person attendees and online viewers to share feedback about the candidates on a quick form – this will be available during the event, and on the city website afterward. We will ask for all feedback by 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26. 

The firm GovHR led the process of hiring a new fire chief, including a first look at all applicants, and a first interview. City leaders received all of the applicant information, including the top five recommended by GovHR. Leaders agreed with those five, and virtually interviewed them last week. 

From those interviews, the interview panel chose the top two: Bill Beaty and Jeff VanderWiere. See their attached short biographies

** We will have Burmese and American Sign Language interpretation available during this event. **
