SOUTH HAVEN — After serving as South Haven’s interim city manager for the past four months, Kate Hosier is moving into the manager’s position on a permanent basis.

City council members on Monday voted unanimously to hire Hosier to replace Brian Dissette, who left in July to become Berrien County administrator. Over the next week or so, Hosier will meet with South Haven Mayor Scott Smith and Human Resources Director Kim Wise to negotiate a contract.
