Lynnfield Fire Chief To Resign
Town announces that Chief Tom Bogart, on paid administrative leave since May 24, will resign to pursue other opportunities.
Lynnfield Fire Chief Tom Bogart will apparently resign to pursue other opportunities, the town announced Monday in a press release.
On Monday, Lynnfield Selectmen had a brief meeting that began by going into Executive Session. Little in the way of information was provided about the chief's decision to depart, which is expected to become official on July 2.
Bogart went on paid administrative leave on May 24 and was removed from that status today, June 25. "Chief Bogart has decided to resign as fire chief to pursue other endeavors," was all the town announcement said about the matter.
In his place, the selectmen announced that Captain Joseph Lingel, a 40-year veteran of the fire department, will serve as interim chief. Captain Glenn Davis will serve as interim deputy chief of the Lynnfield Fire Department. The selectmen also noted that the current assistant chief, John Walsh, is staying in his present capacity as well.
