SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake City Fire Chief Brian Dale will retire more than a year after being sworn in.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1TO2DUk) that Dale informed Mayor Jackie Biskupski late last week of his plans to leave Oct. 1.

City spokesman Matthew Rojas says October is when Dale will reach his 30-year anniversary of service and be eligible for full retirement.

Dale became fire chief in June 2015.

Biskupski, however, put him on interim status when she took office.

The six-month status is set to be lifted in July.

Rojas says Dale sent Biskupski a letter about his decision now so she could take it into account for her long-term plans.

According to Rojas, Biskupski is grateful Dale’s notice allows the city time to hire and train a replacement.
