RIDGEFIELD, Conn. — Ridgefield Fire Chief Kevin Tappe resigned Wednesday as an investigation continues into what town officials have described only as “policy violations,” according to the News-Times.

The Board of Selectmen accepted Tappe’s resignation at a meeting Wednesday evening, the News-Times said.

Tappe was put on administrative leave in December, when the town began investigating the unspecified violations, the News-Times said.

Assistant Chief Jerry Myers has been acting chief, the story said.
