The Merrill fire chief is resigning, according to Merrill administrator Dave Johnson.

Johnson and Savone had “some differences in managerial style,” Johnson said. The two felt differently in how to “treat employees,” he continued.

No formal complaints were ever filed against Savone, Johnson said.

Savone joined the department about five and a half years ago.

He was able to upgrade the department and bring in new equipment, according to Johnson.
