The Wichita Falls City Council voted to approve the appointment of Interim Chief Jon Reese to take over as fire chief for the department.

City Manager Darron Leiker made the recommendation for Reese to be appointed to the position at the city council meeting this morning. Reese was chosen out of a list of 43 applicants, six of which were interviewed for the position.

Former chief Earl Foster retired in March after being with the department for 31 years.
