HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Hutchinson City Council gave the approval to give five applicants personal interviews for the city manager position. The action came after an executive session Thursday.
“This is one of the most important decisions that this particular council will make on behalf of the public that elected us,” Mayor Jade Piros de Carvalho said. “We do not take that responsibility lightly.”
The council agreed on the five finalists out of six candidates that were looked over Thursday.
The five finalists will move forward to on-site interviews, which will include the seven-person advisory committee chosen by the Council earlier this month. Those interviews are expected to be held towards the end of the month.
Names of the finalists are not being released at this time.
