The Ludington City Council met last night. It was not business as usual. Councilwoman, Kaye Ferguson-Holman spoke about some language that does not match in the city by-laws with the states, in regards to the residency of a future city manager. However, due to an absence on the council last night the residency restriction will stay in place for the time being as it did not pass with a two-thirds majority. Councilwoman, Ferguson-Holman does not like what could happen in the future with the restrictions potentially being removed. John Shay, current Ludington City Manager does reside in the city limits. Councilwoman, Ferguson-Holman also feels the City Treasurer and City Clerk should be appointed positions to assure proper qualifications. Due to the absence, once again this was not passed and will be discussed further. The 2015 Marina Report was given highlighting some repairs that have and still need to be made to the 35 year old docks. The meeting wrapped with Mayor Ryan Cox accepting the resignation of Brian Purtee from the Zoning Board of Appeals.
