Elk Grove Village hires Fire Chief

The Daily Herald has an article which states that the Elk Grove Village Fire Department has hired a new chief.

 Elk Grove Village trustees on Wednesday named career firefighter Richard Mikel as the town’s new fire chief…

Mikel’s annual salary is $130,000, and his first day on the job is Aug. 13. He will be sworn in at the Aug. 14 village board meeting.

Mikel spent 26 years with the Naperville Fire Department, starting as a firefighter/paramedic and rising through the ranks to become the deputy fire chief of operations until his departure in 2010. He then became the deputy fire chief of administration for Downers Grove, where he served for two years.

Mikel was selected from a pool of nearly 50 candidates from all over the country. The selection process included interviews and a candidate assessment by the Illinois Fire Chief’s Association. James MacArthur, a former Elk Grove Village fire chief, volunteered his expertise to assist with the interview process.
