Now Accepting Applications for Temporary Mayoral Appointment

With Dave Coulter’s resignation as mayor following his appointment as Oakland County Executive, Ferndale City Council will now consider applicants to fill his vacancy.

The designated appointee will serve as Ferndale’s mayor through the end of the year—which coincides with the end of Coulter’s term—after which the candidate elected in the Nov. 5 election will assume the position and begin a new two-year term.

To be considered for this temporary mayoral appointment, complete the digital application. Resumes and/or letters of intent are also encouraged and can be sent directly to now through Sept. 3 at 4 p.m.

City Council will review the applications and is expected to make an appointment recommendation at their regular Sept. 9 meeting.

If you have questions, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 248-546-4366 or email
