The end of 2020 saw the well-deserved retirement of Township Manager Rose Licht following 29 years of exemplary public service to this community, including the last 12 years as Township Manager. In October the Township hired Adrianna Jordan as its new Township Manager. Manager Jordan has worked for the past 16 years in the field of municipal planning and zoning, including serving for the last 3 ½ years as the City of Inkster Planning Director. Over the next year Manager Jordan looks forward to working with the community on the development of the new Township Hall, strengthening the relationship with the Bridgeport-Spaulding School District, and maintaining the Township’s high-quality customer service while accounting for necessary COVID-19 safety precautions.
