LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointments of Scott Lites, of Bloomfield Hills, and Mark Wollenweber, of Burchville, to the city of Allen Park Receivership Transition Advisory Board (RTAB).
The board was first named in September of 2014 after the city’s financial emergency was resolved and Allen Park transitioned back to local control.
“I am confident these two new members will help the board continue to work collaboratively with local leaders to ensure continued financial stability and growth in Allen Park,” Snyder said.
Lites is a senior partner at Plunkett Cooney, P.C, one of the state’s oldest law firms specializing in real estate and corporate law, finance and mergers and acquisitions. He serves on the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law Alumni Association Board of Directors and is a member of the State Bars of Michigan and Texas. Lites holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and a law degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. He is an added member representing persons with relevant professional experience.
Wollenweber is the city manager for the Village of Grosse Pointe Shore and has served in the roles of interim city manager for the city of Ferndale and as city manager of St. Clair Shores. He is a credentialed manager of the International City Managers Association and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners. Wollenweber holds a bachelor’s degree in urban studies and a master’s degree in urban affairs, both from the University of Detroit Mercy. He replaces Joyce Parker, who resigned, and will serve as designee of the director of the Department of Technology, Management & Budget.
Other members of the Allen Park RTAB are: Suzanne Schafer, administrator of Treasury’s Local Audit and Finance Division (state treasurer designee), and Frederick Frank, owner/principal, Frederick Frank, Attorney & Counselor, and Kristine Barann, vice president of finance, Baker College of Allen Park (both representing persons with relevant professional experience).
