An article in the introduces former Bolingbrook Fire Chief David Litton as the new fire chief for the Green Bay Fire Department.

A former fire chief in suburban Chicago is headed to Green Bay to take the helm of the Green Bay Metro Fire Department.

David Litton, who served most recently in Bolingbrook, Ill., was chosen from among four finalists to become fire chief after a nationwide search that attracted more than 30 applicants.

Litton, 50, said Friday he is excited to be joining the Green Bay fire department, which he said has a rich history and a talented roster of employees.

“I’m absolutely confident that they’re great people, and I’m looking forward to working with all of them,” he said.

Litton was fire chief in Bolingbrook for five years before the community’s elected leaders this spring named their police chief to oversee both police and fire — a consolidation that Green Bay officials briefly considered last year.

Before Bolingbrook, Litton was fire chief for 13 years in another Chicago suburb, University Park, Ill., where he also served for three years as both fire chief and village manager.

Litton’s salary will be $102,574 a year — the top of the city’s range for the position.
