City Manager
City of Manistee, MI
Job Description

Michiganders are rightfully boastful of all the grand peninsula has to offer. And nowhere do all the State’s attributes merge more acutely than on the western shore of Lake Michigan in the Victorian-era jewel that is Manistee. For the decisive leader who has dreamed of living and working in an outdoor lover’s paradise, the perfect opportunity is now available. Manistee seeks a new city manager, only the fifth in 41 years, who is an approachable and accessible leader and who will flourish in a small-town environment with significant amenities. The City seeks someone who will provide both City and community leadership for the future of this historic port community.

The City of Manistee will offer a competitive compensation and benefit package, which will include a starting salary within the range of $100,000 to $110,000, depending on qualification and experience. The City wants the city manager in place by July 2, which is the retirement date for the current city manager.
