WEBBER TWP. — Despite initially saying they would make the decision after the start of the new year, the board of Webber Township has appointed Aaron Summers as the chief of the Webber Twp. Fire Department.
This appointment came on Dec. 17, only two days after the board's dismissal of the previous chief, Cathy Harvey, at a Dec. 15 board meeting. The switch in leadership is a result of internal conflicts and infighting among members of the department over issues such as perceived double standards and special treatment, claims that department personnel failed to follow proper protocols and safety procedures, accusations of drug use while on duty, and arguments during active fires.
