The candidate the Knoxville City Council chose to fill the City Manager position has declined their offer. Jason White, Executive Director of the Midwest Partnership Development Corporation, was offered the job last Saturday afternoon after he and four other candidates completed a two day interview process with the City Council, department heads and staff. White then declined the offer stating personal reasons. Current City Manager Dick Schrad says the City Council is tentative planning to meet Tuesday evening to discuss how they wish to proceed with the hiring process.
