Mayor Marian Orr has named a Florida fireman to be Cheyenne’s new fire chief. Greg Hoggatt, a Boynton Beach Fire and Rescue deputy chief, will take the helm Sept. 1, pending City Council approval. Interim Chief Tom Schingle has led the department since former Chief James Martin retired in February. Hoggatt brings nearly three decades of experience to the top job at Cheyenne Fire and Rescue. He spent the first 23½ years with the Orlando Fire Department, where he climbed the ranks to become deputy chief in 2009. Three years later, he moved to Boynton Beach to take the deputy chief job.
