ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Albany city officials are narrowing down the candidates for the downtown manager and Civic Center Director jobs.

On Friday, five candidates will be in Albany for interviews for the downtown Manager ADICA director position. Assistant City Manager Wes Smith says the candidate have been approved after lengthy background checks. City officials want to conduct one more phone interview with a candidate for the Civic Center Director's position before naming a finalist. Smith says finding the right candidates hasn't been easy.

"This is really a very highly advertised job we've got really high end candidates coming in. The same thing with the Civic Center the four there were exceptional. The fit is so important, you just can't bring anybody in they have to understand how you're going to operate in Albany," said Wes Smith, Albany Assistant City Manager.

If the phone interview goes well, Smith says they could name a single finalist for the Civic Center Director job after the call September ninth.
