(KMOV) – Monarch Fire Chief Tom Vineyard is resigning, News 4 has learned.
Vineyard was hired in January, 2012. The reason for his resignation was not immediately clear, though it comes at a time when the Monarch Fire Protection District board and union continue to be at odds
Just last week, News 4 reported the board recently bought bullet proof vests so they could protect board members during meetings. The vests will be used to create a bulletproof wall meant to protect board members during meetings.
The firefighters’ union said it didn’t understand why the wall was being built.
