The Eagle Fire Department launched the search for a new chief in late 2016 after its former leader, Kurt Vogel, was arrested in August. Vogel and his wife were charged with stealing more than $120,000 from the city of Sterling, where he was employed between 2010 and 2015. Vogel pleaded guilty to the charges in November and he will be sentenced in connection with the crimes on Feb. 8. He faces up to eight years in prison.
Work began last week in preparation for a new 240-unit apartment complex in Avon. t’s the first major construction on the Traer Creek property in 13 years, since the completion of the Traer Creek Plaza building.
