Vernon City Fire Chief Update

Vernon's City Council President John Cook says the town's volunteer firefighters now have keys to new locks at the fire house.

Emotions boiled over between Cook and several firefighters following the termination of long-time Fire Chief James Boswell.

Boswell is also Vernon’s mayor.

Shortly after Chief Boswell's departure, the locks were changed at the department.

Firefighter Alan Downs says he has now been given a key to get in, but he adds the volunteers have hired an attorney to file an injunction to prevent the city council from relieving Mayor Boswell of his fire fighting responsibilities.
