Cairo - Farrell Siler was voted in as the new fire chief Tuesday night, but only two council members voted. Two other council members did not attend the meeting, and one walked out.

Siler was previously appointed interim chief, while applications were taken and interviews held. Siler says he's ready to put the controversy behind him. "I'm not concerned about that," says Siler. "I'm just willing to continue to provide the city of Cairo with excellent service. Fire tradition of fire prevention and fire suppression and just being a role model to the city."

Before the vote took place last night, a motion was made to table the issue, since not all council members were present. It is now up to the council to decide when Siler will assume the role of fire chief.
