New fire chief at Electric City
by Roger S. Lucas
Mark Payne is the new fire chief of Electric City’s volunteer fire department.
He replaces Bill Miley, who resigned as fire chief after serving for about 10 years. Miley is retiring.
Others named in the reorganization of the Electric City fire department were Gary Roscom, assistant chief; Carl Sheehy and Ken Dexter, captains; and Carlos Lira, training officer.
Payne told the council last Tuesday night that his current contingent of volunteer firefighters is 23.
“We could use a couple more volunteers,” Payne told the council.
The fire department meets the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 6 p.m. at the fire hall.
Anyone interested in joining the fire department as a volunteer can call Chief Payne at 631-2039.
