(Eveleth, MN) -- The former deputy commissioner of the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board is back on the job -- one month after he retired.

Brian Hiti volunteered for the retirement as the agency went through a restructuring, collecting 166 thousand dollars in benefits for taking the step. Now, Hiti is back at work drawing a 41-dollars-an-hour salary. The agency has already been criticized for its April action of hiring a former state representative, Joe Radinovich, without making him go through the normal hiring process.
