Butler Township has started the process of hiring a new fire marshal.
The Butler Township Commissioners officially accepted the letter of resignation from current Fire Marshal Chris Switala at their meeting Monday night.
Switala gave 30 days notice of his intent to resign, which will be effective on Dec. 5. Butler Township Manager Tom Knights said he could slightly modify the job description of the position before advertising for candidates in local and regional publications.
Switala started working as Butler Township Fire Marshal in April but was hired as the new Joint Fire Chief for Butler City and Butler Township last month.
