Brighton Township Chooses New Manager
The Township Board will hold a special meeting to approve the manager contract after it is finalized.
The Brighton Township Board of Trustees has decided on a new manager.
Brian Vick was one of five candidates interviewed for the position last month and was at the top of every board member's list, according to Township Supervisor Tom Murphy.
"He brings with him a lot of energy and experience," Murphy said of Vick. "He's run both townships and villages, which are similar in nature, and he's got city background in Grosse Pointe as well as with the Village of Grosse Point Shores. He just brings a lot of different views and different levels to the township."
The board is waiting to finalize the contract, then it will hold a special meeting to approve Vick's hiring.
Murphy said the board does not wish to wait for its next regularly scheduled meeting to approve the contract because it wants Vick to get up to speed as quickly as possible.
Vick will replace former Manager Dan Bishop, who resigned in July to accept a position with the City of Adrian.
Board members previously decided not to hire an interim manager, choosing instead to pick up the slack themselves while searching for a replacement.
