Sturgis has a new parks and recreation director and it didn't take a nationwide search to find him.
Mike Liston is the new director of Parks and Recration in Sturgis, Michigan. Although he was one of the original 54 applicants for the job, the was the third person to be offered the position. The first choice candidate withdrew his name, and the second person called did not pass background checks.
Liston was already a Sturgis city employee as a Parks Department crew leader. He is a Central Michigan University graduate, and has a wife and two children. He began his new job Tuesday.
"It certainly has been an up and down process with its share of surprises," Hughes said in the city's weekly eWire newsletter. "We are ready to move forward and obviously with Mike's knowledge of the Doyle, ready to bring it to that next level."
