Newton Board Selects Fire Chief

The Newton Board of Aldermen has approved a new fire chief.

Aldermen Monday night voted to name Walter Gordon to the position.

In keeping with a tradition, firefighters had elected Donny Collins to the job. However, a state attorney general's opinion found it might be a conflict of interest, because Collins has several family members in the department.

Collins was named assistant chief by the board.
