Meridian Mayor Cheri Barry is expected to name former Meridian fire battalion chief as her pick to take over the role of fire chief.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Newscenter Eleven that Barry will ask the city council to confirm Anthony Clayton to the position. Clayton retired from the department earlier this year.

Newscenter Eleven spoke with Clayton who said he had no comment when asked to comment on the situation.

Barry refused to reveal her choice saying she wanted to wait and let the council make their decision before she went public with her choices to head the police and fire departments.
