Details will not be released concerning the investigation and subsequent resignation of Pierz Police Chief Steve Boser.
Pierz City Attorney Peter Vogel said Minnesota's Data Practices Act limits what can be released about government employees. Since Boser resigned his position before the city of Pierz made a decision regarding any disciplinary action against him, the case against him remains private information.
The Pierz City Council, in an unanimous vote Monday, accepted Boser's resignation effective March 3 - the day Boser submitted his letter of resignation at Pierz City Hall.
Boser had been on paid administrative leave since Feb. 19 as the city council investigated allegations of misconduct by the former chief.
With Boser's resignation, the city's investigation in the allegations against Boser also is closed, Vogel said.
A Morrison County sheriff's deputy, Erik Hanneken, also resigned his position in February. Sheriff Michel Wetzel said no discipline was taken against Hanneken and he declined to say why Hanneken resigned.
