Golden Gate Fire Chief contract to be renegotiated
GOLDEN GATE, Fla. - Some changes are coming to the Golden Gate Fire Department.
Tonight -- the board of commissioners decided not to renew Chief Robert Metzger's contract -- but rather re-negotiate it.
Metzger is on board with this plan.
His current contract expires in 2013. And the union doesn't agree with his annual wages being in the range of $156,000.
The union also points out Firefighters have not gotten a raise in more than 6 years so why should the Chief be making so much.
