Ypsilanti Council Puts Off City Manager Vote

At a session on Monday, May 14, Ypsilanti city council conducted its second hour-long interviews with the two final candidates for city manager. After appointing mayor Paul Schreiber, mayor pro tem Lois Richardson, and councilmember Brian Robb to conduct negotiations with the selected candidate, the council unanimously voted to put off the decision until Tuesday night, May 15, as part of its regular council meeting.

The two finalists are Brian Ralph A. Lange, currently the executive director of the Henry County (Ohio) Improvement Corporation; and Brian P. Vick, who from 2008 until February of this year was the city manager of Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich.
