More details about the suspension of Canandaigua Fire Chief Mark Marentette are expected to emerge later this morning.
A civil service hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Marentette was suspended without pay for 30 days in January. The suspension remains in place, although city officials said he now is being paid.
City Manager Ted Andrzejewski said in early January the suspension was over “internal policies.” He has declined further comment. Marentette has worked in fire service for over 30 years and was appointed chief in Canandaigua in 2011.
His attorney, Michael Harren with Trevett Cristo Salzer & Andolina P.C., has characterized the charges as largely times keeping issues and opposes the charges.
