HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - The changing of the guard at Holland City Hall continues.
It began five years ago when Al McGeehan opted not to continue as the Tulip City's longest-serving Mayor, and continued two years ago when long-time City Manager Soren Wolff retired. Last night, Andrew Mulder told City Council members that he was stepping aside as the retained City Attorney in order to fully focus on being the legal representative for the Holland BPW. Serving nearly three decades in the as the Tulip City's top barrister, Mulder said that he wanted to help guide the utility through the legal hurdles involved with the building of a new natural gas-fueled power plant near the Eastern Gateway that should be operational in 30 months. During a special meeting before last night's work-study session, Council approved the promotion of Deputy City Attorney Ron VanderVeen for a two-year term.
The changes will continue at the end of the month when Assistant City Manager Greg Robinson retires.
