Winooski fire chief accused of inappropriate conduct resigns
WINOOSKI, VT. >> Officials say Winooski's longtime fire chief has agreed to resign from his post in the wake of accusations of "inappropriate conduct" against him.
The Burlington Free Press reports a news release from the northwest Vermont city Monday said that former chief David Bergeron has signed a letter of resignation, which will be effective on May 21.
Bergeron's attorney Bill Norful says the decision was a mutual agreement between his client and the city. He served as fire chief for the last 26 years and was a member of the Winooski Fire Department for 43 years.
A public-records request from the Free Press shows that Bergeron is accused of unspecified "inappropriate conduct" and "printing inappropriate materials on city property."
Norful declined to comment on the pending allegations against Bergeron.
