In a surprise move, Mayor Dave Hallback and the Cloquet City Council voted 4-3 Tuesday to remove the “interim” part of the title and appoint former police Sgt. Jeff Palmer as the new Cloquet police chief without going through the usual hiring process.
Cloquet City Councilors will discuss how to proceed with hiring a new police chief during tonight’s public work session, set for 5:30 p.m. (Tuesday, Oct. 17) at Cloquet City Hall.
