Miceli to serve as acting fire chief
Rockland — Assistant Fire Chief Adam Miceli will serve as acting fire chief for Rockland Fire and Emergency Medical Services, according to acting City Manager Thomas Luttrell.
Miceli will step into the leadership role May 2.
Current Fire Chief Charlie Jordan Jr. has decided to step down May 1 — his 25th anniversary with the department.
Miceli has served on the department since 1995.
Luttrell said the City Council will consider options for filling the position permanently as part of budget discussions this spring. The city could look for a new fire chief, either from within or outside the department, or it could appoint a single public safety director to oversee both the police department and fire.
That will be taken up during a budget discussion April 28, starting at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, the city manager said.
