You can call him “Chief” again. Former Logan Fire chief Mark Meaker has come out of retirement to become Brigham City’s interim fire chief. Meaker says he has entered into a one-year agreement with Brigham City Mayor Dennis Fife and the contract has an optional extension clause for an additional year if both sides agreed.Meaker says they agreed on a three-quarter time, or 30 hour work week position so Meaker can continue some of his volunteer work.He says the call from the Mayor came out of the blue.”It led to a series of discussions and they have some unique challenges that they’re trying to address in Brigham City, kind of a few growing pains, and that is kind of what I have done in my career,” Meaker explains. “This will be the third fire department I have been fire chief of and in all the cases they were good fire departments that just needed to kind of grow with the times and I think that is what they have here.” Meaker was Logan’s fire chief for seven years and before that was fire chief in Elk Grove, California for six years. He says it’s a beautiful commute to Brigham City and he is traveling at his own expense, not the taxpayers’.
