Committee to interview 3 Hayden fire chief candidates

— A committee will meet Wednesday to interview the three finalists for the West Routt Fire Protection District fire chief position.

Bryan Rickman, who recently retired as chief and is helping the district to hire a new chief, said the interviews are not open to the public.

The three finalists chosen to interview for the position are Interim Chief Dal Leck, Capt. Dustin Williams and a candidate from the state of Washington named Doug Hutchison. Rickman said Hutchison is the volunteer chief at the Lyle Fire Department and a captain at the Vancouver Fire Department.

The interview committee consists of community members and two fire board members. The committee will make a recommendation to the board, which ultimately will make the hiring decision.
