Millis selectmen to name new fire chief soon

Posted by Ralph Ranalli March 7, 2008 06:50 AM

After delaying their decision at two previously scheduled meetings due to attendance issues, members of the Millis Board of Selectmen say they intend to name a new fire chief for the town on March 18.

The selectmen have a policy not to make any major decisions without a full five-member board present, and Selectwoman Jennifer Firth was unable to attend the last two meetings.

Last month, the selectmen last month interviewed three finalists for the post: Jay
McMorrow, the departmentís interim chief; Mark Pare, an assistant chief for administration in
the Providence Fire Department; and Steven Garon, deputy chief of the Bellingham Fire Department.
