Levelland Fire Chief Otis Stark has apparently been fired.
Stark, who has been with the Levelland Fire Department for about 31 years, confirmed Tuesday that he had been ‘terminated.’
Asked about the reason for his firing, Stark said, ‘It just started last week.’
City Manager Rick Osburn declined to comment on the action, saying it was a personnel matter.
‘I’m going to respect his (Stark’s) wishes for privacy,’ Osburn said.
While declining to say if Stark had actually been fired, the city manager confirmed that the city will immediately begin looking for a new fire chief.
