Millet fire chief retires.

Millet Fire Department Chief Blair Mohr is retiring from the position of chief, effective May 31, 2017.

Millet’s town council accepted Mohr’s retirement during it’s May 24 council meeting, while doing so Coun. Carol Sadoroszney said kindly it was “reluctant” acceptance.

Members of council and town staff gave their thanks and appreciation to Mohr, who has served as chief of the Millet Fire Department for the last seven years.

“The town is very indebted to you,” said mayor Tony Wadsworth.

Mohr will not be leaving the department altogether, and has agreed to stay in a reserve capacity.

“The reason I’m doing it is the membership, and to help Steve (deputy chief Steve Moen) in a transitional period,” said Mohr.

Mohr recommended to council Moen be appointed as the next chief of the Millet Fire Department. “He’s more than qualified and able to handle the duties.”

“It’s just time for me to step down and let some new blood in there,” he added. “I’ve really enjoyed doing this It’s been my pleasure.”

Mohr first stepped into the world of fire services 24 years ago, and 21 of those years have been in service of the Town of Millet and the East/West Rural Fire society.

A letter written by Mohr, addressed to council, states, “From firefighter to chief I have done my best to give my all to the responsibilities that each title has required. I feel it is in the best interest of myself and the fire department that my time has come to an end.”
