City Council to get final city manager candidate list tomorrow
YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Yakima City Council meets privately tomorrow to go over the list of city manager candidates.
The city's search consultant stops taking applications today. He'll give the council descriptions of the candidates and hear what council members expect for the position. It's a big step forward in replacing former manager Don Cooper, who left after only four months.
"We look forward to the next phase of the process that is... Vaguely familiar because it wasn't that long ago we were through this," says City Councilman Dave Ettl.
The council hopes the meeting will greatly narrow down the list. They plan to start interviewing the finalists on April 19th and 20th.
