Napoleon’s Fire Chief Departs

In Napoleon, the fire chief is quit­ting, but the rea­sons are unclear. Robert Ben­nett told city offi­cials he would resign effec­tive Novem­ber first and Coun­cil was asked at this week’s meet­ing to pass an agree­ment of sep­a­ra­tion, which it did with­out debate. When asked how come Ben­nett was placed on leave in Sep­tem­ber, the city man­ager said it was to inves­ti­gate admin­is­tra­tive issues. They had no fur­ther com­ment other than to say Ben­nett is resign­ing to pur­sue other opportunities.
