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. He hopes the new fire chief will start work Jan. 1.

Eddington will supervise the fire department’s deputy and division chiefs in the meantime, but operations will otherwise continue as usual.
