Stephenville’s new fire chief is from Round Rock. Robert Isbell, who is currently the Fire Chief in Round Rock, has been selected as the only finalist in the search for the new fire chief of Stephenville… the person who will fill the shoes of Jimmy Chew following his retirement. According to City Manager Allen Barnes, there was a very competetive field of applicants… about 30 of them to be exact… with some from as far away as Alasks. Isbell has been Round Rock’s fire chief for the past five years. Prior to that, he served as chief for the cities of Midland, Euless and Southlake. He is expected to fill the job as the new Stephenville Fire Chief on October 4th.
