Fire chief search restarted
July 3, 2020
After months of searching for a new fire chief, members of the Cloquet Area Fire District board decided to start over. They will reconsider the job requirements and administrative structure of the organization before interviewing any more candidates.
The board made its decision at a special meeting Monday, June 29, after negotiations with candidate George Esbensen failed and Esbensen withdrew from consideration, and the succession committee put a different name forward, that of current CAFD training administrator Corey Larson, who had not been selected after the first interviews.
