Robert Hendricks

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The saga surrounding the employment status of embattled Lexington fire Chief Robert Hendricks is over. More than a year after Hendricks was asked by the mayor to step down from his post, the city announced today that he will transfer to another position as part of a settlement agreement.

“Starting Tuesday he will be a firefighter/paramedic with our Division of Fire and Emergency Services. He will no longer be chief, he will be a firefighter/paramedic,” says Susan Straub, a spokeswoman for Mayor Jim Gray.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - It’s been 12 months since embattled Lexington fire chief Robert Hendricks has reported for duty, but he still wants a job with the city.
