Kenneth J. Stull will be sworn in next week as temporary assistant chief for the Ogdensburg Fire Department.
Mr. Stull, who joined the department as a firefighter in September 2000 and, has been one of its four captains since October 2008, will be administered the oath at City Hall on Feb. 13 at 3 p.m.
His annual salary will be $61,518.
Provisional Chief Michael J. Farrell, whom Mr. Stull is replacing, will next have to name a temporary captain. He intends to make that announcement on March 1.
Were still interviewing the captains (candidates), he said Friday, adding that there are four of them.
Mr. Farrell, who replaced the retired Steven M. Badlam on Tuesday, is provisional because he needs to take a Civil Service test with other applicants to create a list of candidates. From that list, one of the top three scorers will be chosen for the permanent chief position. The test will be held next January.
Until a permanent chief is in place, the appointment of Mr. Stull and a firefighter whom Mr. Farrell will name March 1 will remain temporary.
