ROCKLAND, Maine — A veteran firefighter will be taking the helm of the department on May 1.

Assistant Chief Adam Miceli will be the interim fire chief, Acting City Manager Tom Luttrell announced Monday night. He said Miceli has agreed to serve in the position through the council’s upcoming budget deliberations.

Luttrell will be presenting his proposed 2014-2015 municipal budget on April 23. The council generally adopts the budget by the end of June.

Chief Charles Jordan announced earlier this year he was retiring from the department.

Miceli was hired by the city in December 1995. He was promoted to assistant chief in May 2001.
