Give it to the City of Aurora to make a stupid decision like this. He's in trouble for wasting tax payers money playing golf on the clock so what do they do about it? The same damn thing the chief was doing, getting paid to do nothing for the city!!

Since: Apr 07

My guess is that he probably doesn't get paid by the hour, so what's the big deal. Fires don't only occur during the day. Screw the city.

I bet he isn't the only one in a salaried seat of public office that "knows" how to milk the system. I bet his accuser is the same way.
Is it Hot in Here

I think it's great!
These Public Servants need to be held to a Higher Standard.
Nothing like the Fire Chief on the HOT SEAT!
However, 9 News dropped the ball by not reporting weather the Chief is married, and weather the women involved was married.

Isn't he alowed to get exercise? Sounds like the best way to stay in shape to me.

Why is having an affair any of the city's business? The playing golf on work time, yeah, that's a problem, but an affair? That's personal.

Auroa has a thug of a councilwomen(Last weeks assault story) and a cheating Fire Chief. Sounds typical for the city of Aurora. I bet Mayor Tauer was driving the golf cart.....

I can't believe that they are actually looking into this. Workers waste time everyday surfing the net, taking long lunches, personal calls, arriving and leaving early from work. Obviously the individuals who reported him have WAY to much time on their hands.

Life goes on if he did play golf on duty give him a couple days off with out pay and let him get back to work. As far as the affair goes if it happened while he was off duty thats his business. He will have to answer to himself and will pay more then any of us will know.

Why hasn't there been a picture published of the woman involved? I'd like to see what she looks like, considering the chief is such a catch.
