Police chief to get a new hat


Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz announced today that he's asked Police Chief Richard Eddington to supervise the Fire Department on an interim basis.

Fire Chief Greg Klaiber is retiring next week, and Bobkiewicz says the city "will conduct its own nationwide recruitment process" to fill the vacancy.

The city manager says he hopes the new fire chief will start work Jan. 1.

He says Eddington will supervise the Fire Department's deputy and division chiefs in the meantime, but operation of the Fire Department will otherwise continue as usual.
