Kalkaska Village Manager Penny Hill to Lead Statewide Municipal Managers Grouphill

ROCHESTER, Michigan – Kalkaska Village Manager Penny Hill is the new leader of a statewide association representing Michigan’s municipal managers.

Hill was named the 2013 president of the Michigan Local Government Management Association (MLGMA) during the organization’s annual Winter Institute Jan. 29-Feb. 1 in Rochester. She succeeds 2012 MLGMA President Curtis Holt, Wyoming city manager. MLGMA is the professional association for local government managers from cities, counties and townships throughout Michigan.

“I can’t begin to tell you what an honor it is to be selected by my peers to lead such a great organization,” Hill said. “Even with all the rapid change occurring in Michigan over the last few years, Michigan Local Government Managers have remained steadfast in their commitment to the profession and to Michigan.”

Hill has been a municipal government official since 1984, serving at various times as clerk, treasurer and manager. She has been a manager at three different municipalities since 1999, and currently serves as Kalkaska’s village manager. She is a past member of the Michigan Municipal League board of trustees and current chair of the MML’s Liability and Property Pool Board. She is an active member of the MML Legislative Governance Committee and Finance Committee. She is a member of the board of directors for the Grand Traverse Regional Foundation, the Grand Vision Growth and Investment Network, the Kalkaska Planning Commission, the Kalkaska Downtown Development Authority, the Kalkaska Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, and the Kalkaska Rotary Club.

Hill said a main goal as MLGMA president is to continue Past President Curtis Holt’s work in strategic planning for MLGMA, strengthening the organization both in Michigan and as part of the International City Manager’s Association (ICMA). Another goal is to support the MLGMA NextGen Committee in its efforts to engage and encourage young, highly motivated people to join the local government manager profession.

During the MLGMA winter conference, the membership elected the following to serve new terms on the board: Auburn Hills City Manager Peter Auger as vice president; Robert LaFave, L’Anse; Elaine Leven, Charter Township of Oakland; Adam Smith, Jonesville; John Gabor, Marine City; and Rebecca Fleury, Middleville.


The Michigan Local Government Management Association is the professional association for local government managers and their assistants from cities, villages, townships and counties throughout Michigan. The association was founded in 1927. Details: Go to
