Suspended Canandaigua Fire Chief Marentette answers city’s charges

Suspended Canandaigua Fire Chief Mark Marentette on Friday testified on a number of issues brought up against him by the city, including timekeeping, purchase orders and his actions at a 2015 rescue operation.

Testimony during his civil service hearing wrapped up Friday afternoon, but a resolution may be weeks away.

Marentette, who has been fire chief since 2011, was suspended for 30 days without pay in January on what the city characterized as charges of misconduct, incompetence and insubordination.

Both the city and Marentette’s attorney, Michael Harren, have until March 10 to provide written closing arguments to hearing officer Alan Reed, who said he will give the matter immediate attention but offered no timetable for a decision.
