City of Berkley Taking Applications for City Manager Position

Deadline to Apply is Jan. 4, 2016

BERKLEY, Michigan — A southeastern Michigan city known for earning 10 “The Best Community for …” accolades is seeking its next city manager.

The City of Berkley, population 15,000, is looking for a city manager to oversee a $22 million operating budget in the 2.62-square-mile community.

Berkley is located just 30 minutes from all that downtown Detroit offers and is surrounded by a strong regional employment base. It has become a choice location for commuters and independent entrepreneurs, who have created a signature downtown filled with independent retailers, restaurants, and tavern-keepers.

The new Berkley city manager will possess boundless energy and the creative passion necessary to engage a supportive citizenry in solidifying a 21st century identity which respects the culture and traditions that have led to its success as the second “Best Place to Live in Michigan,” according to Areavibes. It was also ranked by Money Magazine as the 28th “Best Place to Live” in the country.

The city is looking for a replacement for long-time City Manager Jane Bais-DiSessa, who left to take the deputy mayor’s post in Pontiac. Bais-DiSessa was the city manager for the past 14 years.

The city will offer a competitive benefit package with a salary range of $90,000 to $115,000, depending on qualifications, experience, and negotiations. Residency and relocation incentives may be considered. The application period for the position is now open and the deadline to apply is Jan. 4, 2016. Go here for details. Check out Berkley’s community profile here.

The city manager search is being led by the Michigan Municipal League’s Executive Search service. The League’s search service has conducted hundreds of city manager, county administrator, and other executive searches throughout Michigan since the program began in 1998.

The Michigan Municipal League has been committed to providing the best possible advocacy, resources, and service to Michigan communities since 1899.  With the League’s intimate knowledge of communities’ needs and challenges, we are in a unique position to provide a comprehensive executive search service.  Our facilitators work closely with each community to develop a customized process, built on years of experience.
