Still no answers after meeting on Cold Spring police chief mess

Cold Spring still doesn’t have a police chief after the city council held a contentious meeting Monday night to review their hiring process.
Eric Johnson, the former top cop in Minneota, Minn., appeared to have the job leading the Cold Spring-Richmond Police Department early this year. But Johnson still hasn’t taken the helm.
The St. Cloud Times reports that the city received information that led to a city investigation and nine-page report, and that the city attorney and at least one council member maintained that the city would be open to a lawsuit if they revealed the reasons Johnson isn’t chief.
Monday night’s meeting drew crowds and accusations that the council was on a “witch hunt,” the newspaper reported. It resulted in no answers on what will happen next.
