City Council to vote on hiring assessor

September 23, 2018

At it’s public meeting Monday evening, the Ludington City Council will vote on hiring a new city assessor.

Three candidates have been interviewed, said Interim City Manager Steve Brock in a memo to the council, and he is recommending the city hire Jared Litwiller of Ludington for the position.

“While all three candidates have the technical expertise, we feel that Mr. Litwiller is the best fit for our community,” Brock said in the memo.

Litwiller’s contract would be for $43,100 plus any supply expenses, “which we estimate to be negligible,” Brock said. The contract would last until March 31, 2021.


The council will vote on whether or not to approve a payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) ordinance with the proposed Depot Apartments.

Developer Herman & Kittle Properties, Inc. wants to build 52 units of low- to moderate-income apartments on the vacant property at 705 S. Madison St., where the abandoned railroad depot now stands.
