City Manager a finalist for Howard City top spot


By Judy Reed


_N-City-manager-thad-taylor-2#1DA3Cedar Springs City Manager Thad Taylor may be moving on sooner than anyone expected. He was chosen Monday evening as one of the three finalists for the part-time Village Manager job in Howard City.

Taylor came to Cedar Springs in 2012, after previously working in Alpena. The Cedar Springs City Council just renewed Taylor’s contract in August, by a 4-3 vote, after a closed session meeting that resulted in a lawsuit by two members of the council and a citizen. (See story on page 3.) The new contract was for three years.

Taylor is on vacation, so was not available for comment.

According to a report from the Greenville Daily News, other finalists are former Edmore Village Manager Eric Dodson, and Daniel Faulkner, an operations and maintenance specialist employed by Wade Trim, and working with the Village of Lawrence Department of Public Works. He is also the Chairman of Watervliet’s Downtown Development Authority.

At press time, the Village of Howard City President S. Michael Scott had not yet returned a call from the Post requesting more details.

    Who can blame him for wanting to move on? He has basically had to deal with a pressure group’s childish, destructive behavior since he came here two years ago. If that group is allowed to continue their divisive ways by gaining a foothold on council Cedar Springs will continue to have a bad reputation. Vote wisely.
