WAUSEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

There's a push underway in Wauseon to hire anew fire chief.

The last chief retired about three monthsago, and the city has had a part-time interim chief since, but some want thenext chief to be a full-time employee.

City leaders said being a fire chief is a lotof work. In addition to being on the road, they're responsible foradministrative duties and applying for grants for the department.

Council member Heather Kost said the dutiesof the position are too much for part-time. She said the city has a great firedepartment, and wants to make sure everyone working for it has the resourcesand ability to keep it that way.

Kost also said the mayor does have plans tomake the position full-time again, they're just not sure when.
