Resolution to Appoint a New Emergency Management Coordinator and Establish the Line of Succession to the Emergency Management Coordinator for the City of Ann Arbor
Memorandum
Section 1:327 of the Ann Arbor City Code vests the Mayor with the power to appoint the Emergency Management Coordinator and a minimum of two persons as successors, on the recommendation of the City Administrator and subject to approval of Council. Recent retirements have necessitated the naming of a new Emergency Management Coordinator along with the naming of new successors.

The Resolution appoints a new Emergency Management Coordinator and establishes a new line of succession for the Emergency Management Coordinator. Sydney Parmenter is appointed to serve as the Emergency Management Coordinator and in Sydney Parmenter's absence or unavailability, in order of precedence, the following line of succession will apply to assume the duties of the Coordinator on an interim basis: Assistant Fire Chief Andrew Box (FD), then Lieutenant Michael Dortch (PD). Both Assistant Chief Box and Lieutenant Dortch have received Professional Emergency Management Certification through the Michigan State Police.
