Payson hires 1st full-time fire chief
PAYSON — Scott Spencer, the city's former fire marshal, has been selected as the city's first full-time fire chief.
For nearly a century, Payson's fire department has been led by a part-time chief.
Historically, Payson's firefighters themselves elected a chief and operated independent of the city. That changed last fall when the City Council assumed control of the department.
In November the council decided to hire a full-time chief.
The last volunteer fire chief was schoolteacher Blake Mortenson, whose term ended Dec. 31.
Spencer's pay is still being negotiated, officials said. The approved salary range is $49,014 to $73,886.Front line since 1983 and still going strong
