OGDENSBURG — Kenneth J. Stull will be sworn in Wednesday as temporary assistant chief of the Ogdensburg Fire Department.

Mr. Stull, who joined the department as a firefighter in September 2000 and has been one of its four captains since October 2008, will take the oath at 3 p.m. at City Hall.

His annual salary will be $61,518.

Provisional Chief Michael J. Farrell, who held the position Mr. Stull is moving into, next will have to name a temporary captain. He said he intends to make that announcement March 1.

“We’re still interviewing the captains (candidates),” he said Friday; there are four candidates.

Mr. Farrell, who replaced the retired Steven M. Badlam on Tuesday, is provisional chief because he needs to take a Civil Service test with other applicants to create a list of candidates.

From that list, one of the top three scorers will be chosen for the permanent chief position. The test will be held in January.

Until a permanent chief is in place, the appointment of Mr. Stull and the firefighter whom Mr. Farrell will name March 1 will remain temporary.
