Just months after retiring from the University City Fire Department, Chief Don Miner has a new job.
Miner was introduced at the chief of the Robertson Fire Protection District at the Feb. 20 Hazelwood City Council meeting. Robertson services the northwestern portion of Hazelwood along with Bridgeton and portions on unincorporated St. Louis County.
Former Robertson fire chief David Tilley announced Sept. 11, 2012, he planned to retire in 2013, and he recently did so.
"It's just time for me to retire," Tilley said. "It's been a great run for me, but I've certainly enjoyed you folks in the City of Hazelwood."
"I'd like to thank the City of Hazelwood for the times I had working with you all," Tilley said. "Hopefully we will continue the long-lasting relationship."
Tilley was with the Robertson Fire Protection District for fifteen years. In his tenure as fire chief, the district has realized an airport expansion, buyout of half of the fire district, a renovation to station one located on Missouri Bottom Road in the City of Hazelwood, along with a brand new station two located at 3820 Taussig Road in Bridgeton.
Miner was a 30-plus year veteran of the University City Fire Department.
