JUPITER, Fla. — A familiar face is returning to Jupiter. This time as interim town manager.

Former Jupiter Police Chief Frank Kitzerow was appointed to the job during a meeting held Monday night.

The Jupiter Town Council selected Kitzerow by a vote of 4 to 1. His start date has not been determined.

Kitzerow was the town's chief of police from 2005 until 2018.

He resigned in April as the police chief for the School District of Palm Beach County — a job he had held since July 2018.

The town council also appointed Tom Driscoll as the acting town manager until Kitzerow assumes his role.

Jupiter's previous town manager, Matt Benoit, recently resigned after calls for ouster. He had held the post since 2017.
