FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oct. 1, 2014

Former Houghton City Manager to Assist Northern Michigan Communities

Scott MacInnes to Serve as Northern Field Consultant for League



ANN ARBOR, Michigan — Recently retired Houghton City Manager Scott MacInnes has been selected to serve as the Northern Field consultant for the Michigan Municipal League. In this role, MacInnes will assist Upper Peninsula municipalities and act as a liaison for the League.

MacInnes officially retired as Houghton’s City Manager on Sept. 19, 2014, which was his 40th anniversary of working for the Upper Peninsula city. The League’s previous Northern Michigan Field Office coordinator, Caroline Kennedy, left to serve as executive officer for the Home Builders Association of the Grand Traverse Area Inc.

“We are extremely excited to have Scott representing the League in the U.P,” said Dan Gilmartin, CEO and Executive Director of the Michigan Municipal League. “He’s a very familiar name and face to our Northern Michigan member communities and he is extremely knowledgeable of the issues and challenges being experienced in our cities and villages.”

MacInnes went to work for the City of Houghton as its recreation director upon graduating from Michigan Technological University in 1974. He served in various other roles for the city until becoming Houghton city manager in 1997. He’s also served as a member of the Michigan Tech Enterprise Corp. SmartZone Board and MTU Corporate Board for Institutional Diversity.

MacInnes said his new consulting role with the League will allow him to continue to work with Michigan communities and managers.

“I truly believe in the role Michigan’s cities and villages can play in Michigan’s economic turnaround,” MacInnes said. “City government has been a major part of my life for four decades and I’m excited to be able to continue to share what I’ve learned with my municipal neighbors in the Upper Peninsula.”

League U.P. community members looking for assistance can reach MacInnes at smacinnes@mml.org.

The Michigan Municipal League advocates on behalf of its member communities in Lansing, Washington, D.C., and the courts; provides educational opportunities for elected and appointed municipal officials; and assists municipal leaders in administering services to their communities through League programs and services.
