Albany--  Downtown Albany could have a new leader by the end of August.

Monday, four finalists for the downtown manager position were interviewed by a staff and citizens panel. The finalists are from Georgia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and California. No one from this area applied for the job.

Assistant City Manager James Taylor says Monday's interviews went exceptionally well and the panel narrowed the list.

"We have two who we believe are exceptional candidates and we are trying to schedule them, well notify them first of all, they haven't been notified yet and then schedule them and bring them in town for second interviews later this month," said Taylor.

The two finalists will be interviewed once again around August 25th. Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority board members will make the final decision. The downtown manager will also serve as ADICA's Executive Director.
