Jake VanBoxel accepted the position of city manager in Stanton hoping that he could make a difference in the community.  The City Manager position is the chief administrative officer. Appointed by the Stanton City Commission, the City Manager is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the city.  A graduate of Ferris State University Jake enjoys small town living and chatting with local businesses and community members. 

Since taking office he has worked on day to day issues of running the city.  Jake oversaw a sewer issue to make residents' lives better. And worked on a new park, with connection to the Heartland Trail, with plans to add a veterans memorial, splash park, ball fields and Disc Golf Course.  

According to an excerpt from Greenville Daily News article written by Brandon Schreur, January 12, 2021:  Jacob VanBoxel accepted the position of city manager in Stanton with the goal to make a difference in the community.  In December 2020, the Stanton City Commission unanimously accepted a city manager employment agreement with VanBoxel, who is originally from Newaygo. He follows former city manager Vester Davis Jr., who resigned in October for a position in Springfield. VanBoxel was previously manager in the village of Kingsley until his resignation in 2017.
“I’d say I probably learned the most about the public works infrastructure aspect of city management (which is what I believe to be the most important aspect),” VanBoxel said of his time in Kingsley. “I also spent a lot of time focusing on economic/community development.”

On September 22 2022 on the Stanton Rotary Club Facebook page: The Big Chuck Disc Golf Course was officially opened. Thank you to everyone for coming out for the ribbon cutting ceremony and helping us to celebrate Chuck Miel and his many contributions to this community!

About Stanton Michigan

Nestled between small lakes and public recreation areas in west-central lower Michigan, the city of Stanton offers a small town environment with agricultural roots, a low cost of living and a high quality of life. Conveniently located within an hour drive of more populated areas (Grand Rapids, Lansing, Mt. Pleasant, Big Rapids) and two major airports (Lansing and Grand Rapids), the city also serves as a gateway to northern lower Michigan via M-66.   As the county seat of Montcalm County, Stanton has several county facilities and office buildings within its boundaries, which adds to the vitality of the business community. Its classic downtown hosts parades and an annual festival each year.  Source https://stantononline.com/community/about/ 

History of Stanton

Stanton was organized in 1860 when the people of Montcalm County voted to move the county seat here from Greenville, which had been the original county seat since 1840. At that time, the County Board purchased 40 acres (160,000 m2) from Fred Hall of Ionia and named the city “Fred” in his honor. The family of Levi Camburn was the first to settle here and he became its first postmaster on March 10, 1862. The city was renamed for Secretary of War, Edwin M. Stanton in 1863. Stanton was platted in 1865, incorporated as a village in 1869, and as a city in 1881.

Ralph Hauenstein first came to the area after his neighbor in Grand Rapids, Lee Olsen (purchased the knife company changing the name to Olsen Knife). Lee invited Ralph to fish the Tamarack where he caught a 5 pound brown.  Deciding to move to the area, Ralph's father purchased the farm and 80 acres.  Later Ralph and his wife moved into the farmhouse while they built the home he now lives in, this was about 1970. During this time he went to school to learn about being an assessor and soon became the supervisor of Reynolds Township.
In this interview we cover the biggest challenges at the time, like there was no zoning. A couple businesses that were "dumping junk in here" and we quote. When asked about his biggest accomplishment he goes over how the value of the township grew.  From business to community growth the interview that was conducted in 2018 is a wonderful look through Ralphs eyes and wonderful for the Howard City and Panhandle area of Montcalm County.  Was involved in the county's involvement of mental health for the area.  
Duane asked Ralph to recap and he talks about the growth area he sees that we are in.  Want to know more, check out this wonderful interview with Ralph Hauenstein, former Reynolds Township Supervisor.

Dr. Don Burns President Emeritus-Montcalm Community College looks back at Montcalm County History

Dr. Don Burns President Emeritus-MCC since 2009. Started as a Counselor in 1971, an Administrator in 1973 before becoming President of the College in 1984.

Dr. Don Burns President Emeritus from Montcalm Community College since 2009.  Don started at MCC as a Counselor in 1971, then an Administrator in 1073 before becoming President of the College in 1984 until 2009. In this episode we jump in our way back machine to an interview Duane did with Dr. Burns in 2018.

Growing up Montcalm and the surrounding area

Going back to the early years my father talked a great deal about his grandfather who came in to Hubbardston Michigan not in Montcalm County but almost.  In 1870 with 4 boys and his wife, he would spend the winters working at what they called the Northwoods, Montcalm County.  Don does not know for certain where but at the time it was driven by the economy.   His Grandfather had a cabin as was beginning a farm and to be productive in the winter time he'd go North, (Montcalm County) and work in the woods.  

Now bringing it forward quite a few years, as a youngster on the farm we milked 30 cows.  We would grow corn, hay and crops that was really surrounding the dairy farm.  He had been living and in working with was education during the 1960's where he taught and then spent time at the American school.   In 1970-71 Dr. Burns was contacted by a Dean of students at Montcalm Community College indicating that there might be a position for him at the college, so he came back to the farm and then the process of applying for that position began.

Don was very happy with the growth of MCC during his time there.  Shortly after becoming President he was part of starting a union that helped with the growth of the college.  In the 1990's they had a growth spurt, in the buildings and staff and built the Dozer building and more updates to the facility.  Then built the M-tech building in Greenville.  In 2003 Electrolux moved out of Greenville with over 5000 locals jobs were lost.  MCC and the community stepped up to offer training for these out of work people.  MCC doubled enrollment and meet the needs of what these people needed.

Always looking at how can improve, know who is Montcalm County.  Rural, Ag County, a place bless with lakes and trees and green.  A place with small rural communities.  Have wonderful access to healthcare and education.  A place where people are able to work, live and compete in a global economy.

About Montcalm County

Montcalm County is the 28th most populated county in Michigan State, with 67,197 residents per 2020 census. Found in Western parts of Michigan, Montcalm was named after General Marquis Louis-Joseph de Montcalm, the famous French troop’s military commander during the war between India and the French. It is part of the Grand Rapids-Wyoming, MI Metropolitan Statistical Area, officially launched in 1831 and organized in 1850. The county’s county seat is in Stanton, the biggest city in Greenville.
Montcalm is a well-run county with a strong agricultural and manufacturing culture and many historic communities and recreational hubs. Furthermore, the county has over 200 inland lakes and a quaint and great supply of natural resources. People flock to the county every year, some settling here permanently or temporarily, thanks to its great choice of boating, fishing, and swimming activities. Montcalm is home to globally-recognized parks, over ten golf courses, and the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail, the 42-mile year-round paved trail for non-motorized use.
