Quincy, Mich. is a small community with a big personality and an even bigger heart! Sitting on the border Michigan shares with Indiana and Ohio in the midst of Amish country, Quincy offers an excellent opportunity for an energetic, hands-on administrator with a desire to be involved in every aspect of the business while setting a course straight ahead for the future.
Proud of its midwestern roots and small-town life-style, Quincy's residents value a way of life where the pace may be less frenetic, but volunteers are high-energy and neighbors care for each other. This is a desirable community where homes are often purchased by transplants “sight unseen“; the downtown hosts locally owned businesses and colorful murals; the tax base is diverse; and the unemployment rate is low. Quincy is looking for a new village manager for the first time in 15 years.
It is a politically civil, full-service village established as a council-manager form of government by ordinance. The workforce of 11 full-time employees, supported by contractors and shared-service agreements, provides municipal services to over 1,650 residents in this community of just over 1.24 square miles.
The village assesses 11.543 mills for operating and another 4.615 mills for streets on a taxable value of over $50,185,000 ($17,772,430 is industrial/commercial). The general fund budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year is $1,090,484 and the total budget approved for the year, including enterprise funds, was $3,006,037.
Public servants who understand and appreciate the small-town way of life and governance would be the best fit for the community. Quincy is seeking a visionary individual who can see how all the pieces fit together to build a new picture of the future and who is flexible and adaptable enough to grab hold of opportunities when they come. Quincy will offer a competitive compensation package including benefits and a starting salary within the range of $64,000 to $74,000 that will be negotiable, depending on the qualifications and experience of the chosen executive.
