Bradford Fire Chief to Stay on the Job 

The town of Bradford will be keeping its fire chief, after a well-attended selectmen’s meeting Monday night.Chief Scott DeMoranville officially resigned to the board of selectmen last night. He says he was frustrated over lack of communication and a new budget procedure. Two other senior fire officials in Bradford told the department they’d be stepping down, too.But Monday night, the chief and selectmen reached an agreement.A volunteer liason will now help with communication between the department and selectmen.And, they modified a budget procedure which had caused some issues. The department is now allowed to spend up to one-thousand dollars a month before seeking selectmen approval.The changes will be in place for at least a six-month trial period. Both sides told TV-5 Tuesday the agreement is a step in the right direction.
