Interim Chief Janssen has been with the department for the last 25 years and has held this position before when former Fire Chief Bob Platts retired.

Interim Chief Janssen will resume the role until the city finds a new official chief as he too is looking to retire from the department.
“I’ll be with the fire department until the end of September,” he says. “Then be retiring in September. I will do this until they find a new chief then resume my duties as deputy chief of operations.”

Those with the city say they will not start searching for a new chief until a new city administrator is hired.
