Weeks after being placed on administrative leave, Twin Falls’ fire chief has resigned.
Tim Soule sent a letter late Friday notifying city administration of his immediate resignation. The city announced Tuesday that it accepted. Soule had been on paid administrative since Aug. 29 as the city conducted an investigation. City officials have declined to disclose what they were probing, other than to say it was not connected to criminal activity.
Tuesday marked one year to the date since Soule was sworn in as fire chief, with an annual salary of $123,188.
According to a legal separation agreement obtained by the Times-News, Soule will continue to be paid through Dec. 16, representing gross pay of $26,059.
