At a special meeting held on Monday, June 12, 2017, the Lathrup Village City Council voted unanimously to terminate the employment of City Administrator Andrew Potter. We felt that this action was necessary to maintain Lathrup’s reputation as a dynamic and welcoming city for all of our residents and businesses.
Our excellent administrative team remains in place and will continue to meet the needs of our residents and businesses. For the immediate future, items that require administrative attention should be directed to our Treasurer and Assistant City Administrator Pamela Bratschi.
The City Council will carefully weigh available options and decide upon the appropriate steps to fill the administrator role to move the city forward. In the meantime, our quality city services will continue as normal.
The City Council has five members on the council, one of which is the Mayor. The Mayor is elected among the council members and serves as Mayor until the next council election. The City General Election is held every two odd years. The council terms are two and four year terms. The two candidates with the highest votes get four year terms, and the next highest get a two year term. The agenda is prepared the Thursday before the Monday of the meeting and is posted on the bulletin board in City Hall. All residents are encouraged to attend City Council meetings and will be given the opportunity to address the council during the public comment section.
