The Gillett City Council on Thursday is expected to act on the election of Kurt Hicks as the city’s new fire chief.

Greg Rudie notified the council last month that he and Vice Chief Kevin Rudie would be stepping down. Greg Rudie has been a firefighter for more than 20 years and has two tenures as chief, this latest run starting in 2014.

Hicks was elected at a fire department business meeting Dec. 19.

The City Council meets at 6 p.m. Thursday at Gillett City Hall, 150 N. McKenzie Ave., Gillett.
