On Feb. 27 the City of Grand Forks announced that chief administrative officer Doug Allin had tendered his resignation from his position, effective March 24.

The move came with no prior warning or fanfare in previous city council meetings or correspondence and leaves a sudden hole at the top of the municipal government structure, with no chance for overlap and training with an incoming CAO.
