City Manager Bruce Brown may see contract extended
The Port Huron City Council is thinking about keeping City Manager Bruce Brown for an additional six months as they have been having trouble finding candidates for a replacement. They plan to discuss an extension at their next council meeting. Brown’s current contract expires at the end of January. If Brown agrees to an extension, it would allow more time for the city council to find a suitable replacement. The city council decided to delay its search for a new city manager back in August after two of the three finalists took other positions before being interviewed for the Port Huron position, and a fourth finalist had taken another job before he knew that the city was interested in him. At that time Brown was planning to work through January 31 when his contract expires. City Council Member Brian Moeller told WGRT that he would prefer that the council wait until after the election in November before making the decision to extend, or not extend, Brown’s contract.
