After weighing his options during his unpaid suspension last week, Barrow County Fire Chief Robert Post decided to come back to work Tuesday morning.
“I think anytime something like that happens, you have to weigh all your options,” Post said in an interview. “In the end, I felt I needed to continue on with the program and do everything I can to improve emergency services delivery to the citizens of Barrow County.”
County Chairman Danny Yearwood suspended Post on March 16 for not following directives on overtime work for his employees.
Post said he came back to work Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. and, in addition to catching up on e-mail and correspondence, spent time with firefighters.
“I told the guys that I came to work here to try to improve the department for the citizens and for the employees of the department,” he said. “I’m not trying to build a kingdom or anything. All I am trying to do is make things better for the people that live here and keep my people safe.”
Talking about bailout he didn't even stay until the end of the week before he bailed out. I would have thought he wouldn't lie to the paper but there he goes off into the wind. Have a good life Post maybe it is for the best that you left. enjoy your Gwinnett retirement at least Barrow isn't going to be stuck paying you
