Albany city manager search progresses

Albany - The next step towards hiring a new Albany city manager is underway. A professional head hunting firm received more than a dozen applications for the city manager position. Now, they will narrow down the applicants. Then, commissioners will interview those applications. The commission hopes to hire a city manager by July 1st.

Newly hired Assistant City Manager Kevin Hogencamp says he already has ideas for improving the way the city is run - mainly adding a call center for citizens. "For citizens to call with non emergencies to report things they see in the community, to file complaints, and to make suggestions," said new Assistant City Manager Kevin Hogencamp.

Commissioners unanimously voted to hire Hogencamp in a called meeting Friday, the day he was expected to leave and take a job with Phoebe Putney.
