Excerpts from the NorthwestHerald.com:

Trustees of the Huntley Fire Protection District Board approved the promotion of acting Chief Scott Ravagnie to chief at a special meeting Thursday night after the resignation of former Chief Ken Caudle.

Ravagnie has worked for the district since 1992, moving up the ranks over the years. He grew up in Huntley and has lived there since 1986. A promotional ceremony will be held for Ravagnie at the board’s next scheduled meeting, 5:30 p.m. Nov. 28.

Moving past an ongoing investigation into Caudle is one of Ravagnie’s goals for the district. He also hopes to find a new location for the district’s main station and will be looking at response times.

Caudle continues to earn a salary of $119,240 while on leave. The Huntley Fire Protection District is conducting an ongoing investigation into something officials won’t talk about. He submitted a letter of resignation to the board Aug. 11, returned to his last commissioned rank of battalion chief, and was placed on administrative leave.
