Sturgis city manager plans to resign

Sturgis City Manager Mike Hughes announced Monday he plans to resign in January after a 17-year career in the city’s top, non-elected position.

Hughes said in a statement Monday he intends to pursue another opportunity outside city government.

He said it has been a privilege and honor to serve the city of Sturgis and giving up the position was a difficult decision.

Hughes has served as Sturgis city manager since July 2005.

His tenure has included several major projects and milestones, including completion of the U.S. 12 downtown streetscape in 2007, collaboration with the historical society and Sturgis Area Community Foundation to move the historic Sturgis Depot building, establishment of the dedicated street and sidewalk improvement millage and creation of the new Spence Softball complex.

Hughes said his last day will be Jan. 20.
