Albany-- Albany city commissioners expect to announce the three finalists for the city manager job next Tuesday.

Tuesday, commissioners held another closed door session to discuss the five people who interviewed for the position last week. By law, the city must release the names of the finalists 14 days before hiring a new city manager.

"Each city commissioner made a ranking of the candidates," said Mayor Dr. Willie Adams. "Today, we received a those rankings, then we discussed those rankings."

Commissioners paid a head-hunting firm $13,000 to narrow down the field of applicants. Water, Gas, and Light Director Lem Edwards has served as interim city manager since Janice Allen Jackson left in December.
