Farmington officials to appoint interim Mansion director

Farmington city council members will on Monday consider appointing an interim director for the Governor Warner Mansion, which has been without a formal leader since former director Kim Shay resigned on June 30.

Long-time volunteer Mary-Jeanne Shore would run city-owned house museum through December 31, 2019. According to a memo from City Manager David Murphy, her focus will be managing events.

The 7 p.m. meeting agenda also includes appointment of a delegate to the Michigan Municipal League Convention in September and estimates related to the current Oakland Street and 2018 Farmington Road maintenance projects.

During a 6 p.m. study session, held in the City Hall conference room, council members will hear a “Smart Cities” presentation from Charter Communications, interview Jessica Bomarito for an open position on the Farmington Community Library board, and discuss adding a maintenance worker to the Public Works staff.

Prior to their regular meeting, officials will also hold a closed session to discuss attorney-client communications.

Agendas for both meetings are posted at

Farmington’s City Hall is located at 23600 Liberty St.
