Rep. Burt may lose firefighter position

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- A drunken driving charge could cost state Rep. Kerry Burt his job as a Waterloo firefighter.

Burt has been placed on leave following a February 11th arrest in Ankeny.

Human Resources Director Bob Stringer says it's because he's lost his license.  It is a job requirement to hold a valid driver's license as a firefighter.

Burt has pleaded not guilty to first offense OWI.  A court date has not been set.
