Spalding County Fire Department Chief Kenny West has retired.

According to a press release issued by Spalding County, West submitted his notice of retirement last week, and Wednesday, March 21, was his last date in service.

In the interim, Deputy Chief Jamie Clark and Deputy Chief Glenn Polk will provide leadership and oversee daily operations of the department “with the full support and confidence of the Board of Commissioners and Spalding County administration,” the press release read.

The press release stated the Spalding County Board of Commissioners and staff expressed thanks to West for his many years of service to the county and its citizens, and for his dedication to the improvement of the Fire Department and its operations. He is wished well in his future endeavors.
