Per the AJ, Westbrook Fire Chief Gary Littlefield is leaving his post about a month sooner than expected, and Westbrook Police Chief Bill Baker will act as the head of the fire department until a permanent fire chief can be found.
Littlefield, who abruptly announced his plans to retire in the wake of personnel complaints from two female firefighters, had been expected to stay on the job until the end of November.
City Administrator Jerre Bryant hopes a new fire chief will be found by January.
