The Rochester fire captain who took his crew to an allegedly racist party last month has chosen to retire rather than be fired by the city.
Mayor Malik Evans says Captain Jeffrey Krywy was told Friday the civil service investigation was concluded and he would have to leave the service.
The party at an East Avenue mansion mocked Juneteenth with buckets of chicken and Hennesy cognac.
A black firefighter serving under Krywy -- Jarrod Jones -- is suing the fire department and the city.
Jones's lawyer wants to know if Krywy is getting his pension and says there should be an independent investigation into who else was at the party.
