Sugar Grove—Deputy Chief Dave Adler left the Sugar Grove Fire Department last month, and Fire Chief Marty Kunkel said there are no plans to replace him.

“I will absorb his duties and responsibilities,” Kunkel said.

Although Adler’s contract had been renewed, Kunkel said the department is in a very tight budget year and everyone is looking for ways to trim expenses.

“We’re all in difficult times,” he said. “Next year’s going to be tough.”

Kunkel said that Adler moved to California to visit his daughter and to explore the opportunities there.

“He’s a great loss for us,” Kunkel said. “We’re going to miss him.”

Adler was in charge of training and operations for the township fire department.
