Mayor Richard BrooksGreetings!

My name is Richard Brooks and I have been on the City Council since 1994 and Mayor since the year 2000. It has been an honor to be an elected official in Plainwell. I consider it to be a beautiful and safe community with numerous options for shopping, recreation, cultural events, summer concerts and much more. Plainwell is known as the Island City simply because the Kalamazoo River must be crossed as you enter the city from any direction. Our community takes full advantage of the river with the use of our parks and riverwalk.

So I welcome you to Plainwell, enjoy a walk through town and maybe I will see you at one of our ice cream parlors.
