GILBERT, Ariz. -- Gilbert is looking for a new fire chief.

Town officials said Fire Chief Collin DeWitt will serve his last day before retirement on May 2 and Jim Jobusch will take over as interim chief.

Jobusch was Gilbert's fire chief from March 2010 until August 2011 when DeWitt was serving as interim town manager.

A national search is being conducted to fill the fire chief position permanently, with a four-week recruitment ending May 24.

Town officials said they expect to hire someone by the end of summer.
