EDWARDSVILLE, Kan. -- Kevin Schuler has resigned from his post as Edwardsville Fire Chief effective immediately according to a news release from the city. Schuler had been placed on paid administrative leave last Thursday, July 17.

City Manager Michael Webb says he accepted Schuler's resignation and the city will begin searching for its next fire chief immediately. While the search is ongoing, Edwardsville Director of Public Safety Mark Mathies will oversee the city's fire department and emergency services.

Schuler had served the department for 10 years. FOX 4 reported that police escorted from his office, confiscating his computer and keys after he was placed on leave.

A reported complaint from a city employee opened an investigation into Schuler, but city leaders would not elaborate on the nature of the investigation when asked last Friday.
