Otsego manager search continues

Otsego’s search for a new city manager continues.
Mayor Cyndi Trobeck said the Michigan Municipal League’s executive search team is compiling input gathered Sept. 26 and will design a recruitment pamphlet.
“Last week, we spoke with some stakeholders,” she said. “We invited some people in, business leaders, people who’ve been active in the city with Otsego Main Street.
“There was also a separate meeting with department heads. Then (the MML) met with city commissioners, all on the same day.”
After the pamphlet is assembled, MML will post the open position for a month among a variety of periodicals that serve city organizations.
The MML team will then vet the applicants and provide city commissioners with a group of people to choose from.
“All the initial legwork is handled by them,” Trobeck said. “It’s still very, very early in the process.”
Otsego is working to find a successor to Thad Beard, who resigned in August to take the city manager job in Rockford.
