Commissioners drop discussion of chief's removal until further notice

CRESTVIEW — The North Okaloosa Fire District board of commissioners will delay considering the fire chief's removal until the board's attorney has more information.

In an October meeting, commissioners asked NOFD Jonathan Holloway to seek the state attorney general’s office input on revising a department-wide disciplinary policy.

The issue arose when commissioners were unclear of the department’s disciplinary structure.

"There isn't a specified structure for disciplining the chief; we also didn't have one with the office administration," Commissioner Craig Shaw said.

Commissioner Todd McGirr at the NOFD's Thursday meeting asked why the policy was needed.

"Why would we want a policy when it is our decision anyway?" McGirr said.

Craig assured him that other policies would be considered soon.
