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."
