A former Janesville Fire Department inspector has filed complaints against Fire Chief Randy Banker and two other department employees.
Banker and other city officials said Friday they could not comment on the nature of the complaints.
The complainant is former Fire Inspector Jeff Bowen.
The city human resources department said Bowen worked for the fire department from April 2015 to April 2017.
Bowen had previously worked for the Madison Fire Department, he told The Gazette in 2016.
Bowen was employed full time at $28.08 per hour, said Tara Semenchuk, assistant human resources director for the city of Janesville.
Asked for the reason for Bowen’s leaving, Semenchuk said, “It appears he resigned.”
The complaints will be the subject of a meeting of the Janesville Police and Fire Commission on Tuesday, according to meeting agendas.
The agendas suggest commissioners will close the meeting to the public to deliberate on “one or more motions” relating to the complaints and then consider opening the meeting for further “consideration, deliberation and/or action.”
Agendas for the meeting suggest three separate “pre-hearing(s),” one for each complaint.
Bowen filed the complaints—against Banker, Fire Marshall Suzann North and Lt. Paul VerHalen—on Nov. 8, according to the agendas.
The police and fire commission is scheduled to meet at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Police Services Conference Room at the police department, 100 N. Jackson St.
