Fire department requests update on chief

(KNZA)--A member of the Hiawatha Fire Department appeared before the city commission Monday evening to request an update on the status of former Fire Chief Ryan Shockley.

Joe Nigus inquired what the fire department could do to get Shockley re-instated.

Mayor Bill Collins said the commission has not held a work session to discuss the issue, so there are no updates at this time. Collins thanked Nigus for coming.

The Commission voted last November to terminate Shockley as fire chief. He had held the position since May 2018. No reason was given for the decision.

Gene Atland was appointed as interim chief.

In other business, the commission approved a request to seek bids for four new desktop computers. Three are for the Police Department and one for City Hall.

The Commission also approved a request to move the January 20 meeting to Tuesday, January 21 due to the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
