City Commissioner Randy Leonard has passed the fire bureau's physical agility test this afternoon, after a complaint about his climbing on the roof of the Marysville Elementary School during a fire last month, without proper certification.
"I did it in 7 minutes and one second," says Leonard. "The most time you are allowed to take is eight minutes and two seconds."
The test is "very tough," he adds. "But honestly, if I'm on a fire scene doing the same kind of thing as the fire fighters, I need to be certified."
Leonard will take a defensive driving test later this week, too.
"It was good to have a goal to work towards," he adds.
