Kalamazoo City Commission to Pick Search Firm Monday

Lead in text: 
Almost 220 city employees accepted an early retirement incentive, to fix a $6 million budget shortage. Among the 219 employees, City Manager Kenneth Collard will retire late next year, as well as Assistant City Manager Jerri Barnett-Moore. The Kalamazoo City Commission will interview three search firms Monday afternoon, one of which will help find the next city manager.
The public interviews start at 4 p.m. in the Community Room at Kalamazoo City Hall, 241 W. South St. Representatives from Bob Murray & Associates of Roseville, Calif., Colin Baenziger & Associates of Wellington, Fla., and Strategic Government Resources of Keller, Texas will interview with the seven commissioners either in person or by a video conference.
