Eudora Fire Chief Randy Ates submits resignation
Eudora Fire Chief Randy Ates has resigned, effective Jan. 15.
"Though things are certainly looking up for the fire department, I have come to realize that I am no longer the right person for the fire chief's job," Ates wrote in a letter of resignation. "I believe that a new fire department administrator will be of benefit to Eudora."
Ates had been with the city since August 2006.
The job opening has not yet been posted and the city's next step will be to put in place an interim fire chief.
