Mayor appoints interim fire chief

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Mayor Buck Clark announced Monday that Battalion Chief Mike Jenn will be the acting Waterloo Fire Chief until a permanent replacement is hired.

Jenn is a 25-year veteran of the department and the most senior Battalion Chief.

The city is beginning a search for a new fire chief and expect to hire someone by early spring.

The post was left vacant when Mayor Clark demoted Chief Doug Carter to Captain last week. Clark said it was part of a reorganization of city government but did not give any other specifics about the decision.
