Interim Chief Steve Abel's contract extended

After an extensive search process for a permanent Chief, the Board of Goshen Fire District, with input from the Pleasant Hill Fire Board has voted to extend Chief Steve Abel's contract up through June 30, 2016.

Led by Chief Abel, the Districts have been working diligently on a "One Team" concept designed to leverage resources to provide more efficient and high quality services to both the Pleasant Hill and Goshen response areas. An intergovernmental agreement outlining the administrative details of this concept is currently being finalized and vetted by both Boards.

The Boards intend to open a second recruitment process for a permanent chief in Fall of 2016.
