Former Davenport Fire Chief Lynn Washburn has won a major battle in her quest to return to the Davenport Fire Department. The Civil Service Commission granted her request Wednesday to return to a position commensurate with her civil service status by a 3-1 vote. Washburn and her attorney, Mike Carroll, successfully argued for her to be returned to a position in line with a district chief, the position she had held at the Rockford (Illinois) Fire Department before being hired as the fire chief in 2011. "I love working for the city of Davenport," Washburn said. "This has been an incredible city and incredible department, so any service I can provide to this community at whatever level, that is very rewarding."
