Nampa Mayor Bob Henry has announced that he has accepted the resignation of Former Fire Chief Karl Malott. Malott's resignation will be effective on December 23rd.

Malott was involved in a motorcycle crash on September 24th on I-84 near Caldwell. He was later charged with driving under the influence after several weeks of hospitalization for injuries sustained in the crash.

"As the Fire Chief for the city, Karl did an excellent job," said Mayor Henry, "That kind of leadership will be missed."

Henry said he will begin the search for a new chief immediately. Richard Davies will continue to serve as acting fire chief.
