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.”
