NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - The outgoing New London Mayor Daryl Finizio is seeking to change hiring practices for firefighters.

WFSB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Oo9EYK ) the board is meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday and is expected to consider setting aside the current hiring policy to allow the mayor to hire a firefighter who name is not on a current eligibility list.

The recruit would still have to pass a qualifying exam.

An agenda notice says it’s an effort to enhance the fire department’s diversity.
