GREENVILLE — The Greenville assistant city manager was chosen as the Plainfield Township manager during a meeting on Monday night.

Cameron Van Wyngarden, 35, has been with Greenville for four years on March 23.

“Yes, I’ve been selected for Plainfield Township Superintendent (manager),” Van Wyngarden said. “We are working on a contract, so I haven’t accepted yet.”

He hopes negotiations will be wrapped up within the next week or so.

According to, Plainfield Township Supervisor Jay Spencer said it was the mixed experience Van Wyngarden had that the board liked. The other candidates included Assistant City Manager and Finance Director for the City of Zeeland Karen Doyle, Township

Superintendent/Manager for Oakland Charter Township James Creech and former New Buffalo and City of Hillsdale City Manager Michael Mitchell.

Van Wyngarden said once he officially accepts the position, he will give about a months notice to the city of Greenville.

“So, I’m not leaving Greenville just yet,” he said.
