Now that Election Day is behind them the Howell Township Council can turn its attention forward to 2014.
That process resumes tonight with another meeting as the search for a new township manager continues. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. and will largely be done in executive session but there will be a chance at the start for members of the public to comment on the process. The council will then meet again on Thursday morning for a special budget presentation for the upcoming year.
The National Weather Service is predicting a relatively warm and partly sunny day with a high near 61 during the day. There is at least a 30 percent chance of showers tonight when the temperature is expected to drop to around 53 degrees. The rain is expected to start after 2 a.m. and run through the day on Thursday.
