City council votes unanimously for Myklebust as Lewiston Fire Chief

LEWISTON, ID - While the budget consumed most of the night, the council had another decision to make, but this one proved to be much easier.

In a six to zero vote, Travis Myklebust is now Lewiston Fire Chief. City Manager Jim Bennett spoke warmly about Myklebust before calling him down to say a few words.

"I'm honored and pleasured to be the next fire chief," said Myklebust. "I work in an amazing community, I love this community. I love members of the community, I love the members of the department. And I look forward to making sure the citizens here are taken care of, that they're safe and that we do the right thing."

Myklebust has been working at the Lewiston Fire Department for nearly 23-years and said he's ready for many more.
