Minneapolis Fire Chief Alex Jackson to Retire

What about the Board Up Truck?

Andy Mannix, writing in yesterday's City Pages, reports on the planned retirement of Fire Chief Alex Jackson in February, before the Minneapolis City Council decides on a two-year extension of his appointment:

Last month, Jackson was criticized for a $1 million overtime bill for firefighters in 2011, and a failed program that tasked firefighters with boarding up vacant houses. The latter was supposed to bring revenue to the department, but instead lost about $300,000 in its first year, according to city data.
