Ann Arbor City Council To Discuss Road Safety And Hiring A New City Administrator Tonight

Sep 14, 2020

Pedestrian and bicyclist safety, as well as what steps the City of Ann Arbor will take next in hiring a new city administrator, will be among the issues discussed Monday night during a special and work session held by city council.  

Ann Arbor’s city council will receive a crash report presentation that highlights incidents involving pedestrian and bicycle accidents.  The report includes statistical information, which reports that 53% of people killed in traffic crashes in Ann Arbor are walking or biking when the incident occurs.  When it comes to the city administrator decision, Mayor Christopher Taylor says extending an employment offer is not the only option they will discuss tonight.

Mayor Christopher Taylor: Council can ask for more information; council can declare the search concluded and to reissue the position.

The three finalists being considered for the position are Ann Arbor’s current interim city administrator, Tom Crawford, Cara Pavlicek, village manager of Oak Park, Illinois, and Eric Wobser, the city manager of Sandusky, Ohio.
