Eudora names acting fire chief following resignation

September 14, 2012


Eudora Fire Chief Chris Moore has resigned, effective Friday, said Eudora City Administrator John Harrenstein.

In his letter of resignation, Moore said, “At the conclusion of the strategic planning process it became clear to me that the needs of the fire department require a full-time chief to effectively serve the community.”

On Friday, Harrenstein announced that Pete Feyerabend, a five-year member of the department, was hired as acting fire chief, until the department hires a permanent chief.

“I am pleased to have a man of Pete’s caliber serving as acting fire chief,” Harrenstein said. “His commitment to the department and to the community reflects a passion for service.” The announcement comes two days after Harrenstein announced that David Burger, a former undersheriff with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, was named interim Eudora police chief, following the resignation on Sept. 7 of the previous chief, Grady Walker.

What is going on in Eudora? First the Police Chief now the fire Chief. The statement in the article is fishy, because for the last 10 years Eudora has had a full time fire chief. There is more to this story with both Chiefs. LJW you need to dig alittle deeper, on this story.

It's called one chief doing an illegal/unethical favor for the other and getting caught. Cost them both their careers. That's why you should not abuse your powers.

Wow, interesting. Thanks for that info, like i said seemed to be more to the story than reported. If it was something illegal is there a criminal investigation or swept under the carpet investigation.

What are the facts here. What did one chief allegedly do for the other? If true, why hasn't the local paper printed this information?
