At Monday’s meeting of the Board of Trustees, Archinal’s retirement was formally accepted, with his last day set for October 14th, although according to a memo from Human Resources Specialist Kim Lane, by utilizing his accrued Vacation and Personal Time, Archinal’s last day on the township’s payroll will be December 31.

“I propose Kelly VanMarter be promoted from Assistant Township Manager to Township Manager, and Amy Ruthig from Zoning Official to Planning Director,” stated the memo. “Both of these individuals are highly competent in their abilities to assume the responsibilities of these positions.“

Lane recommended a new salary of $134,000 for VanMarter, with her promotion effective October 17.

Archinal had been among three finalists for the City of Brighton’s manager position following the departure of Nate Geinzer earlier this year. However, that post went to Gretchen Gomolka, the acting Brighton city manager and the city’s finance director, in July.

Archinal has been Genoa Township’s manager since March of 1998. Prior to that he was the Assistant City Manager/Community Development Director for the City of Brighton. He has also worked for the Cities of South Lyon and Wixom and Milford Township.
