East Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - The East Syracuse Fire Chief remains suspended from his position following a meeting with the village board Tuesday evening.

Village of East Syracuse Mayor Robert Tackman says the village board wants more time to discuss what led to the suspension of Fire Chief Robert Russell and what options are available.

Russell was suspended from his position on Friday, Jan. 31.

The mayor says he hopes the village board will meet in the next week to regroup.

In the meantime, East Syracuse First Assistant Chief David Brewster will serve as Acting Chief.
