Wanted: A new Grand Forks fire chief. Current Chief Peter O’Neill has announced his retirement effective January 5th. O’Neill says after 44 year’s it’s time to step aside. He started with the department in 1973 as a “pipeman.” O’Neill says a lot has changed in terms of technique and equipment over the years. He says one thing that hasn't changed is dedication to service. O'Neill says he plans to remain in Grand Forks but will spend more time with family...friends...and ice fishing.
Mayor Mike Brown will appoint an interim chief until a permanent replacement is found
