There is going to be another change in top management of public safety in the second- largest city in western Massachusetts.
Chicopee Mayor Richard Kos Monday announced the planned retirement of Fire Chief Stephen Burkott, which is expected within a year. Burkott, 62, has been on the Chicopee Fire Dept. 41 years, the last dozen as chief.
" It truly was, or is, the best job in the world," said Burkott.
