On Friday, City Administrator Nick McIntyre said Fox will be allowed to continue to care for Xena in the interim period while city officials and her attorney work through issues surrounding her departure from the force.
Fox said she was forced to resign after lodging complaints about the police chief. The resignation drew a crowd to Monday’s City Council meeting and demonstrators showing their support for Fox to City Hall on Thursday.
Many of Fox’s supporters said she should be able to keep Xena.
