For each City Council meeting, I provide links to the agenda on the City's Legistar website, CTN's YouTube video of the meeting, and to my newsletters and voting charts. I write summaries of agenda items, along with Legistar links, articles I've written (highlighted purple), and articles published on MLive. Look for highlighted text to find votes on development, affordable housing, and the City's Sustainability and Innovations department.

September 13, 2021

This was a Special Session to consider one resolution: moving forward with a process for evaluating two candidates for the position of Interim City Administrator for a time period of up to a year. This meeting was held online, via the ZOOM application. Michigan Open Meetings Act changes effective April 1, 2021 require all Council Members to state their location.

  • CM Disch was absent

  • APPROVED: Candidates Peter T. Burchard and Milton Dohoney, Jr will be evaluated in public interviews by City Council and interviews by the City Executive team before September 23, 2021, in order for Council to meet and reach a decision by September 27, 2021. The resolution was amended at the table to include staff input and (after recommendation from City Attorney Stephen Postema) clarify that the evaluation process will be overseen by the Council Administration Committee, the Acting City Administrator, and the City’s Director of Human Resources. (Legistar)
