Portage Fire Chief Clayton Simonson has been at the helm of the Portage Fire Department for 13 years, and hasn’t indicated any readiness to retire. But when the time comes for Simonson to hang up his turnout gear — temporarily or permanently — there’s a plan in place to pinpoint his successor. The city’s Human Resources Committee on Tuesday took a long look at a draft of a succession plan for Simonson. City Administrator Shawn Murphy said this is the second plan formulated for succession of a city department head, and it won’t be the last. In October, the panel analyzed a succession plan for Police Chief Ken Manthey, who recently celebrated his 40th anniversary with the department, and who has indicated the likelihood of his retirement within two years.
