The Sonora City Council on Monday approved a contract with former California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection chief Michael Noonan to serve as the city’s interim fire chief.
Noonan, who lives in Curtis Creek, begins his stretch with the city today and will take over for Mike Barrows when the chief leaves later this month.
“I think (Noonan) is going to do a very good job for the city,” said Barrows, who said he was relieved to see the interim chief in place before he left.
Under the contract, Noonan will earn $41.48 an hour.
The agreement is temporary and states he is only in place for the recruitment period.
