Middlebury elects new fire chief

MIDDLEBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Middlebury’s fire department has a new chief. Tony Bruno was elected by town officials. He previously served as deputy chief and was appointed interim chief after former chief Paul Perotti was fired.

Perotti is facing federal charges. He’s accused of taking more than $70,000 dollars from a federally funded program and using it for his own business.

Perotti was in court late last week and pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. He is out on bail, but facing up to a decade in prison if convicted.
