City of Northville officials celebrated the work of past officials and welcomed the newly-elected mayor and two council members last week.
Outgoing Mayor Ken Roth thanked his colleagues on the city council for four great years of “camaraderie, collaboration and working to solve difficult issues”. He conveyed his appreciation for their support and help and thanked City Manager Pat Sullivan for “being a great asset to the city in his judgment, experience and guidance.”

Departing Mayor Pro Tem Nancy Darga presented a proclamation to Roth, citing his 20 years of service to the City of Northville - both in his capacity as mayor for four years and for his work on various commissions and boards. His public service included his leadership roles on the Northville Public Schools Board of Education. The city proclaimed last Sunday, Nov. 17, as Ken Roth Day.
Incoming Mayor Brian Turnbull and city council members Barbara Moroski-Browne and incumbent Marilyn Price were sworn into office by 35th District Court Judge Michael Gerou. 
Turnbull, suffering from laryngitis, also thanked Roth for his “time, talent and devotion to the city.” He notified Marilyn Price that she would be mayor pro tem at his recommendation with approval of council members. Turnbull also expressed his thanks to Darga for her service on the council and for her work at the city, county and state levels.
Turnbull commented , “A strong foundation has been established by the previous administration of Ken, Nancy and others before them. Now it's time to build on that for the future, moving forward together.” He also thanked those who came to the meeting or will watch the meeting on video, noting “The more people we get involved, the better the future of Northville.”
