Mayor Names Four Finalists for Fire Chief

Mayor Chris Beutler today announced four finalists for the position of Lincoln Fire Chief:

The candidates will be interviewed in Lincoln April 15. Mayor Beutler will make the final decision with City Council approval.

Members of the committee that selected the finalists were Public Safety Director Tom Casady, Human Resources Director Doug McDaniel, Human Resources Coordinator Kari Foote, Mayoral Aide Molly Burton and Health Director Judy Halstead. The City was assisted in the search process by the Prothman Group, an Issaquah, Washington firm specializing in executive searches for governmental entities.

Battalion Chief Tim Linke has served as Interim Fire Chief since the retirement of John Huff in June 2015. Linke did not apply for the permanent position.
