New Roles For Ex-Fire Chief

Posted by wlpo on March 29, 2011

While he’s no longer fire chief, Gene Scheri has a couple new titles as a Spring Valley fireman.

The city council named him the fire chief emeritus and fire marshal at last night’s meeting.  While the chief emeritus position is just honorary without pay, Alderman Dan McFadden and Mike Richetta voted against the title saying it shouldn’t be appointed.  McFadden also voted against Scheri becoming fire marshal believing that the position should be picked by the fire department instead of the city council.

The fire marshal position means Scheri is responsible for inspecting plans for new buildings.  The job will pay him 50 dollars a month.

Sheri was recently replaced by Todd Bogatitus as fire chief.
