Mayor Mike Huether recommends Division Chief Brad Goodroad be appointed as the next Sioux Falls Fire Rescue chief.
Goodroad has served since 1994, the city said Friday. He was joined by his family during Huether's announcement at Sioux Falls City Hall.
The Sioux Falls City Council will now decide whether to approve Huether's selection to replace former fire chief Jim Sideras. Goodroad has been serving as active fire chief since the city announced that Sideras was no longer employed by Sioux Falls Fire Rescue.
Human Resources Director Bill O'Toole said that the council will make its decision on June 6.
