First, Rochester's police chief, and now the city's fire chief has announced his retirement.
Chief Sam Mitrano said Friday he intended to stay on as chief, but was informed Thursday by Mayor-elect Lovely Warren that she was going in a different direction.
Mitrano has served as chief for a little more than a year. He's been with the department for more than 25 years.
"You know, I kind of expect changes as administrations change and I guess I'd have to say that it was a surprise to see that I was not going to be here anymore," Mitrano said.
Mitrano's last day with the department will be Dec. 31. Warren takes office the next day.
