MINNEAPOLIS — The Minneapolis City Council approved the nomination of Jim Clack as the city’s new fire chief on Friday.

Clack has worked for the Minneapolis Fire Department for 21 years and has been acting chief since April. His term will expire Jan. 2.

He replaces Bonnie Bleskachek, who was reassigned following an investigation of allegations of favoritism and retaliation, and a sex-tinged culture in city firehouses.
