Friends of a former fire chief are circulating a petition hoping to help him get his job back. Last week Former Simpson County Fire Chief, Curtis Burgett, was fired after allegedly obtaining a memo illegally. Now, more than one thousand Simpson County residents have signed a petition aimed to get Burgett his job back.
The memo Burgett had was written by Major Jim Brown. Brown outlined a plan on how to merge the city and county fire departments. The idea behind the merger is to save money. The issue is expected to be voted upon within the next couple of months.
