The open position of fire chief in the city of McMinnville will be posted within the department for five days. If no one applies or no one meets the qualifications, the job will be opened to the public. During Tuesday night’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting, under consideration was a recommendation from the Safety Committee for the board to direct the city administrator to post the fire chief position.Alderman Mike Neal, chairman of the Safety Committee, asked to alter his committee’s recommendation by adding a five-day posting in the department first.“It has been brought to my attention that we have in our policy and procedure manual that we can post a job five days in that particular department to see if anyone in the department is qualified or wants the position,” said Neal.
