Mayor Mike Huether is set to announce his nominee to become the newest fire chief in Sioux Falls.
The city has interviewed eight internal applicants for the position, Human Resources Director Bill O'Toole said last week. On Friday, Huether will name his recommendation for the next fire chief at a 11:30 a.m. news conference on Friday.
The Sioux Falls City Council has the final vote on who will officially replace former fire chief Jim Sideras. He first announced his retirement back in April, but the city said in May that Sideras was no longer employed after investigators searched his home. He currently faces 10 counts of possessing child pornography.
