BATH TWP.: Bath Fire Chief Walt Hower requested and received trustees’ approval for the resignation of town members in his department on Nov. 19.

Cynthia Norris, a part-time substitute with the department for the past 20 years, is retiring, effective Friday. Norris is a full-time employee with the Canton Fire Department and has been an effective member of the joint operation between the Bath and Copley fire departments, especially at Station No. 2, the joint Stony Hill Station in Montrose, said Hower.

Tom Kamp, a full-time fire medic, is now the sixth Bath employee to retire due to changes in the Ohio Public Employee Retirement System.

“These were all experienced, highly valued employees, and we are very sorry to see them all go,” said Trustee Jim Nelson.

Kamp will retire effective Saturday, although he will continue with Bath as a part-time fire medic after that.
