Walter Gibbons has been chosen to be Etna’s fire chief, it’s a position he’s held in the past.
Gibbons takes over for chief Rick Goodell, who resigned after a falling out with town officials.
The friction led to the temporary closing of the department back in October.
Town manager Evelyn Serval says the town is now anxious to move forward and put the controversy in the past.
Chief Gibbons resigned as a selectman, as soon as he got the new position.
