"No, there is no outstanding litigation against the city," McGinnis said this week.

Dennis Edwards was the director of the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety until he was placed on administrative leave in November 2010 over a dispute with City Manager Pat McGinnis. Edwards said the dispute was over the legality of city speed limits.

Grand Haven City Council voted 3-1 in February 2011 to terminate Edwards.

In December, council approved the hiring of a retired Cadillac public safety director, 47-year-old Jeff Hawke, as Grand Haven’s public safety director. He began work in January.
