Scottville to consider appointing Brock as interim city manager

April 11, 2019

SCOTTVILLE — Steve Brock, former interim city manager of Ludington, could soon be adding Scottville to his resume.

The Scottville City Commission on Monday will discuss appointing Brock to serve as interim city manager in the wake of Amy Williams’ departure at the end of April.

Williams told the Daily News that she and Mayor Bruce Krieger have been talking with Brock about potentially filling the seat while the city works with the Michigan Municipal League to find a permanent replacement — a process that is not expected to be complete until May.

Brock served as the interim city manager in Ludington from July 2018 to January 2019 after John Shay and prior to the hiring of Mitch Foster, who assumed the post in March.

In the notes for Monday’s meeting, Williams noted that Brock has also served as city manager of Farmington Hills before his 2015 retirement.

“Steve has spent his career as a city manager and I’ve had the pleasure of knowing him during my time with Scottville, as we would run into each other at conferences and meetings,” Williams said. “Steve is a great guy and I’m happy that he is able to fill in here until a new manager is in place.”

Williams said Brock has spent the winter out of state, and will be back in the area by the end of the month.

The city commission meets at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Scottville City Hall, 105 N. Main St.
