The Village of Howard City chose a new Village Manager at its meeting Monday evening, April 3.

The vote was 7-0 to select Michael Falcon, of Gladstone, Michigan, as their new Village Manager. He has been employed at Northern Michigan University since 1999.

The Village Council interviewed four finalists for the position, and interviewed three of them last week, on March 27: Wally Delamater, Village Manager in Suttons Bay; Charles Watson, a former Cedar Springs Mayor and City Councilor; and Thomas Raymond, former Manager for the Village of Lexington.

Falcon was interviewed Monday evening, April 3 at the beginning of the meeting.

“All the finalists would be good choices for Howard City, but Mr. Falcon stood out above the other candidates, with a great vision for Howard City,” remarked Randal Heckman, who has been doing double duty as Village President and Village Manager since 2014.

Heckman said that the background check is complete, and that the next step would be drawing up his contract with the Village attorney.

Falcon is slated to start working a couple days a week starting in May, and then full time around June 1.
