As of May 21 Scott Kenley became the city of Davis’ interim fire chief. The city manager Steve Pinkerton made the announcement as Interim Fire Chief William Weisgerber leaves. Weisgerber served as the interim chief for the city since March 2010.
Kenley has been active in fire services for over 40 years. He has experience ranging from firefighter operations to fire chief.
“I look forward to working collaboratively with the men and women of the Davis Fire Department, the city and the community to set the stage for the new fire chief,” Kenley said in a city of Davis press release. “The goal is a smooth transition from three years of an interim management team to a more permanent management team with a long-term vision for the department.”
A recruitment effort is underway to hire a permanent fire chief.
“We appreciate the fine service provided to the city of Davis by Bill Weisgerber and look forward to working with Scott Kenley and utilizing his many years of experience in fire services,” said City Manager Steve Pinkerton in the release.
