The Millet Fire Department has seen the naming of a new fire chief.

Former deputy chief Steve Moen took up the title of chief May 3, 2017.

Millet town council accepted Moen’s appointment to fire chief during its May 24 meeting; the same meeting in which Blair Mohr’s retirement as chief was also accepted.

“Like the chiefs before me I will do the best I can to represent this town,” said Moen, who has been with the Millet Fire Department just shy of two decades.

Moen was recommended for the position of chief by both Mohr and former fire chief Al Kilborn. “You come with accolades not only from fire chief Mohr but former fire chief Al Kilborn,” said mayor Tony Wadsworth.

“I would like to recommend deputy chief Steve Moen as the next chief of the Millet Fire Department. I believe he is well suited to fill this position,” said Mohr in a letter addressed to council.

In a second letter Kilborn stated, “I recommend that deputy chief Steve Moen be appointed fire chief for the Town of Millet (He) has served with honour and has the total respect of the entire officer group and firefighters, as well as our mutual aid partners and the Millet East/West Rural Fire Society.”

The councilors agreed and unanimously named Moen fire chief.
