Ishpeming Ready to Send Contract to New Manager

The city of Ishpeming is another step closer to having a new city manager.

During a special City Council meeting late this afternoon, the council accepted the offer for Jered Ottenweiss’ contract for the position.

The only change they made from what they originally proposed was Ottenweiss’ initial start date.

It will be March 15th rather than the 8th.

Ishpeming Mayor Gary Nelson says the council will now mail out the contract offer, with the date change on it, for Ottenweiss to sign and send back.

Nelson says he’s confident Ottenweiss will sign the contract and start work in Ishpeming on March 15th.
