Town Manager Carl Valente has named John A. Wilson as chief of the town’s Fire Department. Wilson, a Lexington firefighter since 1985 who has been a captain in the department since 2007, will be sworn in as chief on May 23. He will take over for Keith Hoyle, a retired fire chief from Amherst who has been filling in as interim chief since the retirement of William Middlemiss last year. Lexington conducted a nationwide search, and had 30 applicants for the chief’s position, according to the town. The town narrowed the search to four and then two finalists who were interviewed by community and staff panels before Valente selected Wilson. Brock Parker
