Seeley Lake Fire Chief Receives Raise, Declines Job Offer


SEELEY LAKE - The Seeley Lake Rural Fire District Board of Trustees raised Seeley Lake Fire Chief Bob Vanden Heuvel’s salary from $35,000 to $50,000 plus benefits following a special meeting June 15. Even though Vanden Heuvel had another job offer pending, he agreed to continue working as the Seeley Lake Fire Chief.

Trustee Scott Kennedy told the board that Vanden Heuvel was considering a job offer.

“I’ve always felt he has been underpaid as a fire chief,” said Kennedy. “Whether he is here or not here, there is not a fire chief I know that makes under $50,000 plus benefits.”
