TRAVERSE CITY — The Grand Traverse County Road Commission picked Jim Cook, executive director at Great Lakes Safety Training Center in Midland, to be the commission's next manager.

The board invited three candidates back for second interviews on Oct. 26 and agreed to offer the job to Cook. He will replace Mary Gillis, whose contract expired this month.

The board will meet in special session today at 5:15 p.m. in the commission chambers of the Governmental Center to work out details of their job offer.
