CEDAR LAKE | The Town Council has approved a new Fire Department hire.
Fire Chief Todd Wilkening made the case for a new hire last month. The department’s goal is to have three people per shift, and more personnel are needed to make that goal a reality.
Town Council President Randy Niemeyer said funding for a 12-month salary of $41,500 was put together via shifts and adjustments throughout the budget.
“I’d like to thank everybody who worked hard to make that happen,” Councilman Greg Parker said.
