Council is considering sharing Spring Lake Township Community Development Director Lukas Hill and Grand Haven City Planner Kristin Keery at a rate of $50 per hour, which is $8 an hour less than a competing bid from Williams & Works.

The six-month trial period would cost the Village $15,000 for about 15 hour per week. Hill would fill the part-time slot July through September, followed by Keery October through December.
