Fire Chief James Fortin says he will retire at the end of this year. Fortin became a Marlborough firefighter in 1983. He was promoted to lieutenant in 1997 and to captain in 2006. He became chief of the department in March 2012. Fortin said he wanted to provide the city with as much notice as possible before stepping down. “Marlborough is fortunate to have a man like Jim Fortin as our fire chief,” Mayor Arthur Vigeant said in a statement on his retirement plans. “His character and integrity is of the highest caliber, and I’m sorry that we are losing him.”
