[November 10, 2010]  In a letter addressed to Mayor Keith Snyder and all members of the Lincoln City Council, city fire Chief Kent Hulett tendered his resignation Tuesday evening.

InsuranceIn the letter, he wrote:

"I am submitting my letter of resignation as Fire Chief of the Lincoln Fire Department. My last day of employment with the City of Lincoln will be Friday November 26, 2010.

"I have accepted the position of Fire Chief with the Chippewa Wisconsin Fire District.

"I greatly appreciated the opportunity to serve the citizens of Lincoln, with the support and cooperation of our firefighters, you and the city council members, department heads and city employees, neighboring fire and emergency agencies, and the community."

Hulett's resignation came as no surprise to the council, as they had been advised several weeks ago that he was on the short list for the position in Wisconsin.

After reading the letter of resignation, Snyder said that there would be time in the next couple of weeks for proper "goodbyes" and "thank-yous" but he wanted to immediately thank Hulett for all that he has done for the city.

Moving on, Snyder said that effective Nov. 26, he would appoint Mark Miller, assistant fire chief, to be an interim chief.

He added that before beginning an official search for a new chief, there is a need to do some updating on the current job description and responsibilities of the position. He wants that to be done beforehand so candidates will know what is to be expected of them before they apply.
