The Wilton Board of Selectmen has voted not to hire a new Fire Chief. A candidate was recommended by the Fire Commission. Reasoning behind the decision was discussed in executive session, which is not open to the public. No explanation or name was given before the vote, which was unanimous. Selectman Ross Tartell recused himself because he's part of the fire commission. Chief Ron Kanterman served from 2014-2019. Former Danbury Fire Chief Geoffrey Herald has been serving as interim chief for the Wilton Fire Department since July.
