Daily Herald report

Lombard's fire chief, assistant fire chief and battalion chiefs now will be required to live within a five-mile radius of the intersection of Main Street and Wilson Avenue.

Anyone who does not live within the radius when appointed to one of these positions has a year to move into the area, according to a revised ordinance. Having more fire officials live in or near Lombard will help the department serve its residents as efficiently as possible during emergencies, Village Manager David Hulseberg said.
