Berkley City Manager Invites Residents to Chat

In his first few weeks on the job, Matthew Baumgarten, is excited about his role as Berkley’s City Manager and the prospect of making a positive impact in a well-run, stable community.

Baumgarten is getting a crash course in what makes Berkley unique. From the business leaders who serve on the Downtown Development Authority board to residents that stop by his office to introduce themselves, he has learned that residents are passionate about their quality of life in a city with tree-lined streets, good neighbors and a thriving school district. “I’m excited about this opportunity to meet the residents face to face and talk about the things that are important to us all”, said Baumgarten. “I have a vested interest in Berkley since my family and I are looking for a home in this beautiful city.”

Number one on the new city manager’s to-do list is establishing a dialogue with Berkley residents. To begin this process, Baumgarten is inviting residents to “Chat with Matt” and talk about city related concerns residents may have, operational challenges and priorities for the city and other matters related to the current state of city infrastructure, including municipal buildings.

Two “Chat with Matt” sessions will be held on Wednesday, August 3rd at 3 PM and 6 PM at Berkley Public Library, located at 3155 Coolidge Hwy.

DPW Tree Maintenance Program

The Department of Public Works will be evaluating trees in the city’s public right-of-ways. Representatives from J. H. Hart, the urban forestry company hired by the city, will be driving through Berkley, trimming city owned trees as needed. On occasion, the certified arborists may determine a tree is in poor condition and recommend its removal. Some of the older Silver Maple trees in Berkley have internal rot. This condition compromises the tree’s structural integrity and ultimately creates safety concerns. For more information on this process, contact the Department of Public Works at (248) 658-3490.
