The Cherryvale Interim Fire Chief, Jess Reed, received appointment to the position as chief at Monday evening’s city council meeting.

Mayor John Wright made the appointment after an executive session Monday evening, which received a vote of approval by the full council. Reed, who has been with the fire department since 2005, replaces Chad Russell who resigned in January to take a position in Andover.

Cherryvale did not have a deputy chief at the time Russell resigned, and Reed as lieutenant was the highest ranking firefighter and became interim chief.
