STRATFORD, Conn. — Fire Chief John Cybart isn't the only one under fire by town officials for a potential conflict of interest involving the bidding and selection process for buying a new fire truck for more than a half-million dollars.
Former Town Council Chairman James Feehan, owner of New England Fire Equipment Corp. of North Haven, whose company was chosen to supply the truck by a bidding selection committee, now also finds himself in the hot seat for the second time in less than a decade.
