Fire Chief Scott Berkenbush has resigned, according to a letter he provided to the town, citing personal reasons. The resignation is effective immediately, and Berkenbush is also vacating his seat on the town’s Board of Fire Engineers. Earlier this year, Berkenbush was the subject of an investigation by the state Ethics Commission because of a possible conflict of interest between his role as fire chief and his personal profession. The Board of Fire Engineers was expected to meet last week to discuss staffing changes.
