The Lake County News-Sun has an article introdcing a new fire chief for the Waukegan Fire Department.

Two weeks after taking office and immediately naming a new police chief and city attorney, Mayor Wayne Motley brought change to the fire chief’s post on Monday, May 20, by accepting the resignation of Dan Young and replacing him with Ricco Farrell.

Farrell, a 30-year veteran who most recently served as battalion chief, became Waukegan’s first African-American fire chief when he was sworn in during Monday night’s City Council meeting.
