Downtown manager search narrowed down to a few

July 11, 2007

Albany--  Downtown Albany could have a new leader before summer's end.

Assistant City Manager James Taylor told Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority board members Wednesday night that the search for a downtown manager has been narrowed down to four or five candidates.

They'll be interviewed on July 30th and ranked. Since the downtown manager will also serve as ADICA director, board members will make the final choice.

"We will just interview and then rank them with ADICA and ATI and community leaders. We'll rank them 1 through 4 or 5 and we'll present that group and our rank to the ADICA board and the ADICA board will decide who they want to represent them," said Taylor.

The search for candidates has lasted about two months. Final candidates are from as far away as Texas and Pennsylvania.
