SMOOTH TRANSITION EXPECTED FOR NEW CITY MANAGER
Whomever the Port Huron City Council decides to hire as the next City Manager, they'll be coming onboard at the same time the city has lots of irons in the fire; with developments, various projects, ongoing sewer separation, housing and rental issues and still-declining revenues from property taxes. But, even with the challenges, it'll still be a good time to get the gig, with strong community groups, investors and developers looking to build and create jobs, and so forth, with current manager Bruce Brown saying he's looking forward to assisting the new city manager... or not, as he or she may wish. Brown says it is rather rare to not have a conflict or two during such a transition. In many cases he notes councils simply seek new managers with the former one gone due to various disagreements. The council has begun the process of searching for a new city manager, with assistance from the Michigan Municipal League. The search is expected to continue through the summer, with the council eventually narrowing down their list of candidates to four or five, with public interviews to be conducted in the fall.
