(January 11, 2008) Continuing the exodus at City Hall, Department of Public Works director Bill Bohlen announced he is resigning effective February 1, 2008.

Bohlen was hired 23 months ago to replace long time DPW and Building department manager Harry Hutchison. Bohlen said in his announcement that there have been many more highs than lows in the job. Bohlen said he is branching out on his own to start a consultancy focused on infrastructure operation and maintenance.

Bohlen is the 13th Department manager to leave the city of Ypsilanti in the last three and half years and the second to quit in the last two weeks. Charles Boulard, Building Official and Building Department manager, resigned on January 4th to take a job with the City of Novi.

Stan Kirton is expected to be the interim DPW manager. The City also announced last week that Karen Hart, the recently hired director of planning is the interim Building Department manager.
