Pat Brady, who has been leading the Lockport Fire Department as interim chief, has taken the city up on its offer to lead the department permanently, despite a hefty pay cut.

Brady, who had until 5 p.m. Thursday to accept the position, waited until just about the last minute before accepting the offer.

"We're very excited to have him and he's going to do an excellent job," said Lockport Fire Board President Pete Robinson.

Similarly, Mayor Anne McCaffrey said, "I look forward to working with Pat as the fire chief."

Brady has been making over $67,000 annually — in base pay alone — as a captain on the department. The new chief's salary of $53,000 is at least a $14,000 annual pay cut for Brady — at least for now.

McCaffrey said the annual $53,000 salary is in effect during his 12-week probationary period and can be renegotiated after that.

Brady has been serving as acting chief since December. He was one of six candidates to apply for the position of chief.
