Replaced by Karl Repay, Brother of County Commissioner Mike Repay
The Gazette has confirmed through several sources that Assistant Fire Chief Pat Moore, Jr. has retired from the .Fire Department. Patrick Moore, Jr. is the son of Patrick Moore, Sr. the longest serving Hammond Park Board Member.
Moore, Jr. was the subject of a contentious overtime investigation by the Hammond City Council in 2010. Moore, Jr., who was a Deputy Chief at the time, received as much as $26,000 in overtime pay, approved by then Fire Chief David Hamm. At the time, then Hammond City Councilman Dan Repay voted in favor of demanding records from the fire department regarding Moore, Jr.’s overtime. Dan Repay has since gone on to be the Executive Director of the Little Calumet River Basin Commission.
Karl Repay, brother of Dan Repay and County Commissioner Mike Repay, will replace Patrick Moore, Jr. as Deputy Fire Chief according to sources.
Moore, Jr. is the third high ranking official to leave the City since April when Police Chief Brian Miller announced his retirement followed by City Controller Bobby Lendi’s departure for a job in Chicago.
