The Homer Volunteer Fire Department is seeking a new fire chief. According to a City of Homer press release, Former Chief Terry Kadel is longer with the department after taking over the position just eight months ago. The release quoted City Manager Katie Koester wishing Kadel luck on his future endeavors, though it did not disclose why Kadel is no longer serving as fire chief. According to the release, Koester met with fire department volunteers to quote “solicit feedback on the department’s leadership needs and discuss the plan for moving forward,” end quote. Fire Department Captain Dan Miotke will serve as acting assistant chief, a position formerly occupied by Kadel. That position has remained empty since Kadel took over as chief, and the city says it will be closing the application period for the job on Dec. 15.
