Chief receives complaints

THREE RIVERS – The Three Rivers Fire & Water District Prudential Committee met amidst a packed house at the fire station Monday morning, as observers from within the district and beyond gathered to watch what was to be a public disciplinary hearing regarding Three Rivers Fire Chief Scott Turner. But in the end, Turner requested that the proceedings be held in executive session and much of the community will be kept in suspense regarding complaints of the Prudential Committee surrounding his performance for at least the next two weeks.
Turner was presented with a list of charges by the committee this week, and has 10 days to respond to them.
