New City Manager Search Community Survey

Gaslight Village

The East Grand Rapids City Commission is looking to the public for input as it searches for its next city manager.

The community is invited to take a short, simple survey to provide feedback on what traits and qualities they would like to see in the new city manger.

The City Commission is currently in the process of selecting a new city manager after Brian Donovan announced his retirement this past spring. Donovan, who served in his role for 25 years, plans to remain with the city until a new manager is found.

The commission is working with the Michigan Municipal League for the search and plans to have applications submitted by mid-November. Candidates will be then be selected for an interview process targeted for December.  The public will have the opportunity to meet the final candidates.

“The feedback our residents and business-owners provide about what they want to see in the next city manager will help guide us in our decision,” Mayor Amna Seibold said. “We hope everyone will take a few moments to share their thoughts with us.”
