Fire department makes no decisions in promotion confusion

Posted: Updated:

The Evansville Fire Department is still trying to put out a fire over who's getting a promotion. There's been a stalemate over whether the positions are listed on a table of organization.

The Fire Merit Commission heard from both sides on Tuesday night. Fire Union President Larry Zuber says there's no reason to block these promotions and blames the city for being disorganized.

"If you budgeted the money and you ask for money for a specific rank or position, I can't understand why it's not on the table of organization. You're asking for funding for a position they say doesn't exist," Zuber says.

The fire commission took no action Tuesday night. The union says it will continue to try and get those promotions approved.
