    Bob Williams named Saratoga Springs Fire Chief
    By DENNIS YUSKO, Staff writer


    SARATOGA SPRINGS -- Capt. Bob Williams was named chief of the Saratoga Springs Fire Department at 1 p.m. today in City Hall.

    Williams, 49, will succeed Robert Cogan when Cogan retires Friday after being chief for more than 14 years. Williams was selected by Public Safety Commissioner Ronald Kim over two other candidates, Assistant Chief John Betor and Capt. Pete Shaw.
    Williams is a 25-year member of the department and a third-generation city firefighter. His father, Thomas, served as chief of the department and his grandfather was a department member from 1932 to 1954.

    Bob Williams was appointed to the force in 1984, promoted to lieutenant in 1992 and captain in 1995. He takes command as the 54-member fire department loses seven firefighters to budget cuts on Jan. 1.

    "We're going to continue to do the job," Williams promised.
