Months of disagreement at Lebanon Junction has finally boiled down to a firing.
After Jan. 6th’s city council meeting, Mayor Butch Sweat gave LJ Fire Chief Mark Shumaker Jr. a letter of termination.
Sweat said it was in the best interest for the city for Shumaker to resign.
“He’s not abiding by what the council wants,” he said.
Per an open records request, The Pioneer News obtained a copy of the letter.
