Crete Fire Chief Michael Waterman announced on Wednesday that he will retire on April 4th.
“There comes a time to open a new chapter in your life and say to yourself it’s time to take care of you and your family. After 36 plus great years in the fire service it’s time to say fair well. I have made more friends then I can name and worked with the best people in the world,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
“I am opening a new chapter and for those of you in and around Beecher you will still see me quite often. I am going to remain as a trustee at the Beecher Fire District and will be around the Hack-Jensen funeral home a whole lot more,” he added.
