Wausau Fire Chief nears retirement date

WAUSAU (WAOW) - The search for a new Wausau fire chief continues.

Fire Chief Gary Buchberger said Tuesday that his last day on the job is Jan. 31, when Police Chief Jeff Hardel takes over as acting fire chief.

Buchberger announced his retirement in November after nearly 16 years on the job.

"I wish the new chief well, whoever they select and I'm looking forward to the next chapter in my life," Buchberger said at a Wausau Police and Fire Commission meeting.
