SCOTTVILLE — Bruce Krieger was elected Mayor Monday night during the organizational meeting of Scottville City Commission. This will be the second time Krieger has served as Mayor, he served two two-year terms in the 1970s.

Scottville’s city charter requires City Commission to elect its chair from within, as opposed to a council type of government such as Ludington, where the voters decide the mayor. In a commission style of government like Scottville the mayor also gets a vote because he/she is still a commissioner as well. In a council government, the mayor only votes to break a tie.

Krieger and his wife, Jackie, moved to Scottville in 1966 when he became employed as a high school teacher at Mason County Central Schools; he is now retired. Krieger also served several years as the Scottville/Amber Township representative on the Mason County Rural Fire Authority Board and also was the Riverside Park supervisor for many years.

“Yes I have an agenda,” he said.  want to see Scottville improve. I want to take care of the blight problem we have. I want to see if we can get a vibrant downtown again. It’s a big order but we are going to work on it. The other commissioners are on board as well, so here we go.”

Commissioner Marci Spencer was elected as mayor pro-tem.

Re-elected commissioners and newly elected commissioners were sworn in, including commissioners-at-large Sally Cole and Krieger, First Ward Commissioner Leon Begue, Commissioner-at-Large Connie Duncil, and new commissioners Sue Petipren, first ward, and Tom Donald, second ward.

The city commission will meet in regular session on Monday, Nov. 21 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 105 N. Main St.
