NORTH BALTIMORE — The manager of a Michigan village is likely to become the next village administrator of North Baltimore.

During a special meeting scheduled at 7:15 p.m. today, North Baltimore Council will consider legislation to hire Donna Dettling of Dexter, Mich., at a starting salary of $70,000, effective Aug. 11.

Dexter is a village of about 4,000 people situated near Ann Arbor.

If approved, Dettling would replace Kathy Healy, who is retiring this month after more than seven years as North Baltimore’s village administrator.

Dettling was one of four candidates who made the final round of interviews for this post.

Also today, Village Council is expected to consider an ordinance that would adjust sewer rates that were raised last spring.

Many village residents have complained that their sewer bills were higher than they had anticipated.

Council raised the rates to help finance the separation of storm sewer and sanitary sewer lines in the northern portion of the village.

Also, village officials will consider hiring paid emergency medical technicians to augment the staff of the village ambulance service, which currently uses volunteer EMTs.

Prior to the special meeting, council has scheduled an informal committee-of-the-whole session at 5:45 p.m. today.
