Palmer has been on voluntary leave since April, using accumulated vacation and sick time, City Administrator Aaron Reeves said. 

Reeves said the resignation was also voluntary and was effective Thursday.

Palmer served as interim chief after former Cloquet Police Chief Steve Stracek was placed on administrative leave, reinstated by the City Council, and then retired. Palmer was hired as chief in October 2017. 

"The City will start the search for a new Chief once our current Police Department Operations study is complete in September," Reeves wrote in an email. 

Carey Ferrell has served as Interim Police Chief since April and will continue to do so for the time being.
