By Ryan Lewis, Editor
Wayland city council members have narrowed their choices to two in their effort to hire a new city manager.
On Saturday, Jan. 28, they interviewed four applicants; invited back to a second round of interviews Wednesday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m. at city hall were Howard Fink, the city administrator for Merrillville, Ind., and Cameron Van Wyngarden the Greenville assistant city manager.
Wayland's interim city manager, Terry Hofmeyer, said no decisions had been made but he anticipated the council offering a contract to one of the men at the city meeting Monday, Feb. 6.
The Michigan Municipal League is conducting the city manager search for the city; it was conducting a total background investigation this week on both applicants.
Not invited to the second round of interviews were Constantine Village manager and former police chief Mark Honeysett of Portage and former Albion assistant city manager Jim Graham.
City hall is located at 103 S. Main St.
