Shelby council selects chief, administrator.

By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

SHELBY — The Shelby Village Council voted this week to select both a new police chief and a new village administrator.

Muskegon Police Department Lt. Steven Waltz was selected as police chief, and Mason County Planning and Zoning Director Brady Selner was selected as administrator.

“The council selected Mr. Steven Waltz Monday evening as the lead candidate for the police chief position,” said Interim Village Administrator Bill Cousins. “Final action to hire him is expected to be taken at the Oct. 26 council meeting — pending background checks and contract discussions.

“The council selected Mr. Brady Selner on Tuesday evening as the lead candidate for the village administrator position pending a report from staff on his background and references. The council will meet next Monday, Oct. 19, at 5:30 p.m. to take final action on contract details. It is expected that his contract will be presented to the council at the regular meeting on Oct. 26.”

The council had narrowed down its police chief search to two Waltz, who lives in New Era, and Daniel Adams.

Adams, of Byron Center, is a sergeant for the Grand Rapids Police Department.

The council had narrowed down its search for a village administrator to three candidates — Selner, who is a Norton Shores resident; Mark Borden of Carson City, Michigan; and Sherry Powell of Fremont.

Bordon is the director of business operations for Physician Anesthesia Service in Lansing, and Powell is assistant manager/city clerk for the City of Grant.
