AUBURN — An additional week for job seekers gave city officials nine more resumes to choose from in the search for a permanent city manager.
Auburn councilors should receive copies of resumes from the eight best candidates from a pool of 25 on Wednesday, according to interim City Manager Don Gerrish.
Councilors will begin going over the resumes at an executive session March 28.
The city began advertising for a new manager in February. They'd hoped to have at least 75 resumes to sort through but only received 16 by the March 16 deadline and extended the deadline by one week.
Gerrish told city councilors Monday that the city had received resumes from 25 seeking the manager's job.
"We are going to give you a notebook with the top eight, by our estimation," Gerrish said. "You can look at all of them, however, if you'd like."
The previous City Council voted to terminate City Manager Glenn Aho's contract in October. They voted in November to hire consultants Eaton Peabody to lead the search for Aho's replacement and manage the city in the meantime. Gerrish, an Eaton Peabody consultant, is also serving as the city's interim city manager.
Councilors are scheduled to begin interviewing potential candidates April 9 and 10.
