Homewood Welcomes New Assistant Village Manager

Michael Marzal was sworn into office during the Oct. 9 Homewood village board meeting.

New Assistant Village Manager Michael Marzal was sworn in to office during Tuesday night's board meeting.

The Tinley Park native was formerly working for the Village of Lincolnwood, but a desire to return to the South Suburbs brought him to Homewood.

"I grew up out here," Marzal said. "I used to swim at (H-F) High School and play hockey at the (H-F) ice rink."

Marzal received his master's degree in Public Administration at Northern Illinois University. Before Lincolnwood, he served as assistant village manager for the City of Woodstock. He foresees a smooth transition into his new role.

"Operationally, I think (working for Homewood) will be similar to what I've been doing in the past."

The position of assistant village manger is common among most municipalities. I've hung around town hall long enough to learn that running a village is a lot more work than you might think.

Seems frivolous and unnecessary to me, I bet they are paying him a meaty salary as well. If the Patch could FOIA this, that would be nice.

There has always been an assistant village manager in Homewood. The position became vacant after Jim Marino was promoted to village manager.
