The Knoxville City Manager hiring process continues to move forward. Richard Fursman of Brimeyer-Fursman LLC presented the City Council with another list of candidates at a meeting yesterday which they reviewed to select a handful of applicants they wish to interview.

As previously reported on KNIA/KRLS the first round of interviews was unable to secure a satisfactory employment agreement with a selected candidate earlier this year and the council asked Fursman to return to the original pool of 82 applicants in search of someone with significant economic development experience.

The council and city department heads will interview the selected candidates March 25th and 26th. The tentative start date for the new City Manager was previously set for April 4th.
