HOWELL – During a recent council meeting, the council introduced an ordinance that would set the salary range for the position of Deputy Director of Community Development for the township.

According to the township’s Director of Community Development, Jim Herrman, this is a new position and has yet to be filled. “The deputy director has not been hired yet. We are currently seeking candidates for interviews,” he said.

The ordinance sets the salary range for this new position as $85-125,000.

“We are looking to fill the position with a licensed professional engineer with at least eight years of experience in municipal/county government work or private development that included land use, planning, engineering and construction experience,” said Herrman.


The Deputy Director of Community Development will assist the Director in all aspects of the job.

Herrman noted that the addition of this position will help the department to “continue to provide an increased level of service to the community in all aspects of Community Development.”

The Community Development department does such work as reviewing and revising ordinances, performing limited design engineering work in-house, and improves the daily capabilities within the office among other duties.

The salary range proposed by this ordinance has been included in the recently adopted 2018 Municipal Budget.

The council intends to vote on this ordinance for final passage at the June 12 meeting.
