Two weeks ago, the city conducted interviews for the finalists, but wasn't able to find a satisfactory candidate.

 

Rob Duvalle is the director of the city's human resources.

 

"We had an extensive process.  We had a variety of partners, the fire district and fire association.  And we set high stnadards for what we're looking for through that process.  We had two candidates which we proceeded to the next stage where we did further interviews looking at the candidate's needs and the city's needs and unfortunately we were not able to secure a successful outcome for the city."

 

Former Bend Fire Chief Larry Langstone has agreed to serve as the city's interim Fire Chief until a permament replacement is found.

 

He will take over next Monday.
