CORNWALL – The four vacant firefighter positions, which have been vacant since March 2013, won’t be filled very quickly.

Coun. Andre Rivette’s motion passed Monday night during a special budget meeting, which will not see those positions filled until the new fire chief is hired.

Chief Richard McCullough is slated to retire this spring and the city is in the process of finding a replacement.
