Baker City Manager Fred Warner Jr. said a Michigan man has accepted the job as Baker City Fire Chief, contingent on a background check and drug test.

John Clark would take over for interim chief Cliff Hall, who has been in that role since Chief Tom Wills retired this summer.

Clark, 57, most recently served as chief of the Delta Township Fire Department in Lansing, Michigan. In July, he resigned from his position where he had served seven years as the chief. His stated reason for leaving was that he want to relocate to a new area, according to a story in the Lansing State Journal newspaper.

Prior to serving as the chief, Clark worked for almost 40 years as a firefighter. Clark was previously one of two finalists for another job in early September in Pleasant Hill, Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register. The city didn’t end up hiring either of the candidates after one of the candidates withdrew his application. The Pleasant Hill administration didn’t disclose which candidate withdrew.
