At last week’s meeting of the Nashwauk City Council, officials voted to rescind a previous fire department resignation.
The city council had approved a retirement for John Calaguire from the fire department, dated Feb. 15. In a letter dated March 24, Calaguire requested that his resignation/retirement be rescinded and that he be reinstated.
Calaguire’s resignation/retirement was rescinded by the fire department on March 15, but also required council approval. The council unanimously approved the request.
In other business, the council:
• Approved the minutes of the March 15 regular council meeting and Jan. 10 special meeting.
