Puslinch and Centre Wellington to share fire chief

Centre Wellington council expected to approve arrangement on June 27

ABERFOYLE – Puslinch and Centre Wellington will soon share a fire chief.

Puslinch council voted in favour of a motion to enter into a shared service agreement with Centre Wellington for Tom Mulvey to be fire chief for both municipalities.

Mayor James Seeley reported the news following an in-camera session on June 22.

Brad Bigrigg has been serving as interim chief for the Puslinch fire department since August 2021, when Luis Gomes retired.

Gomes had been at the helm in Puslinch since 2017.

Mulvey became fire chief in Centre Wellington when Brad Patton retired in 2021.

Mulvey is to take over as fire chief in Puslinch on June 29 and Bigrigg will become deputy fire chief/administration the same day.

Centre Wellington council still has to approve the arrangement. That is expected to happen at the June 27 council meeting.
