ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany won't have a new Downtown Manager and ADICA Director in place for several months, but the pool of candidates has been narrowed from 50 to 8.
The city had a conference call with the consultants helping with the hiring process Thursday. The list will eventually be narrowed to several finalists who will be interviewed in Albany by several panels of city and ADICA officials. The city promises more stringent background checks to avoid mistakes made with the selection of Don Buie, the last downtown manager who ended up in jail for theft.
"They now will go in and actually do their own interviews and own background checks and of course they have resources where they might be able to talk to someone who knows these people who aren't a listed reference. We're going to do our homework, but we're allowing him to take the first step," said Wes Smith, Albany Assistant City Manager.
The city is handling the search internally for a new Civic Center Director. They've pared 50 applicants down to seven. Phone interviews are set up with five of them. Three or four candidates will eventually be brought to town for interviews. City officials say they're looking for a candidate who will be able to recruit good performers to Albany.
