Lake Township Fire Chief Dennis Boos resigned last night, citing shoulder injuries that qualify him to receive a partial disability pension.
After a three-hour executive session, Chief Boos, 53, submitted his resignation to township trustees and thanked officials and residents for their support. He was appointed chief in 1998.
Chief Boos has been on unpaid administrative leave since June after informing township officials earlier in the year he was applying for a disability pension because of injuries.
He also was a full-time firefighter 19 years for the Toledo Fire Department. He resigned June 17 from his Toledo post.
