The Cedar Springs City Council interviewed seven candidates today in their search to replace former City Manager Christine Burns, and whittled the list down to the top three. Their choices are (in no particular order):
Thad Taylor, former City Manager of Alpena, MI.
Patrick Reagan, DDA Director, Portland, MI.
Jonathan Greene, Executive DDA Director, Jackson, MI.
The Mayor polled the handful of community members and took comments, before Council discussed their own impressions. A couple of other candidates also made a good impression on the Council, but lacked the experience they sought.
Final interviews will on Wednesday at City Hall beginning at 5:30 p.m. Each will be about 45 minutes. The City Council will then make their final decision and vote on it Thursday evening, at their regular City Council meeting.
