West Chester Township’s captain of emergency medical services has been named the new fire chief for Clermont County’s Miami Township.
The township Thursday offered Stephen Kelly a conditional contract.
Kelly, a Mason resident who served with West Chester for 17 years, recently received his master’s degree in public administration from Northern Kentucky University.
He beat out 35 other applicants to get the job. He replaces Jim Whitworth, who retired Aug. 16.
The position has been filled on an interim basis by Patricia Brooks, the former fire chief for Forest Park.
If Kelly passes his drug test and background check, trustees are expected to formally hire him at their Oct. 7 work session.
His potential salary was not immediately released.
