After serving as Watertown's interim fire chief for the past several months, Kraig Biefeld has been selected to fill the full-time position by the city's Police and Fire Commission. The announcement was made by Mayor John David at Tuesday's Common Council meeting. Biefeld will succeed Chief Greg Michalek, who retired in mid-August. Jim Schildbach, vice chairman for the commission said Biefeld was chosen because of his extensive experience as well as his dedication to fire protection and emergency management. "His past speaks for itself as far as what he's done and what he's accomplished," Schildbach said.
