MONROE - After an arduous process spanning three months, the Monroe Board of Police and Fire Commissioners decided to hire Dan Smits of Crete Fire Department in Illinois instead of current interim chief Lane Heins as the new Monroe fire chief. Board president Charles Koch said Smits was simply the best person for the position. The five-member commission voted unanimously for Smits.
