Holmen fire chief suspended

Holmen Fire Chief Doug Shober has been suspended.

The decision was made at a closed session meeting Sunday Afternoon.

William Ebner with the Holmen Area Fire Board said Chief Doug Schober was suspended with pay indefinitely, pending an investigation.

Ebner said the two assistant fire chiefs, Wes Linberg and Bill Bulawa, will be in charge for now.

Ebner could not comment on Sunday’s meeting. However, in September, multiple firefighters spoke out against top management saying if something didn’t change, they would turn in their pagers and resign.
