Council discusses city administrator candidates

Cloquet City Councilors and city staff held a special meeting Monday to discuss the various candidates for the city administrator position. An initial group of six candidates was already winnowed down to five after one of the applicants took another job. That left five for councilors to consider for interviews on July 17. Councilors discussed candidates by number, rather than name, to keep details private in the public meeting. Cloquet Human Resources Director James Barclay has been serving as interim city administrator since long-time City Administrator Brian Fritsinger left after March 17 to take a job as deputy county administrator for neighboring St. Louis County.
