The County Board was scheduled to put the official blessing on all these developments at its regular meeting yesterday (May 2.)
Chisago County Attorney Janet Reiter told the Press there has been an investigation which is complete, based on a complaint the county received about Sheriff Duncan. At this time, results of the investigation are not considered public data. She said outside legal counsel was called on to determine if the investigation data can be made public, and there would be no further comment now.
Duncan posted his decision not to run and retire on Facebook updates reporting on his foot surgery, his second procedure in recent months. He lauded the department for continuing to provide service to the county. Duncan said on his Facebook post he has confidence that Thyen will do a great job in the upcoming months remaining before the sheriff term expires at the end of 2018.
