Sebastopol Fire Chief

In a letter to the Sebastopol City Council, interim Fire Chief Jack Piccinini expressed all his frustrations with the current financial situation in the town before he resigned as chief on November 3rd. Not enough volunteer firefighters for 24-hour staffing, a $1.67 million budget deficit and a hiring freeze all led to his departure. In an article published in the Press Democrat, he mentioned incidents earlier in the year the department was unable to respond to. Sebastopol mayor Neysa Hinton says they are working on solutions.
