DEMOPOLIS, Ala.---Former Augusta fire chief Ronnie Few has a new job, but his troubled past may be getting in the way.
Thursday night (August 2), the Demopolis city council named Few the fire chief. Then, the local newspaper, the Demopolis Times, started reporting on some problems. They include a grand jury investigation in Augusta, a stormy tenure as chief in Washington, D.C., and questions about where Few lived when he ran for mayor of Augusta.
Public outcry following the report prompted the city council to call a special meeting set for tomorrow to discuss the situation.
