Albany--  After months of searching, the city is going back to the drawing board to find a qualified downtown manager.

After interviews last week, the search committee picked two finalists. This week, one withdrew her name for personal reasons. The other is now interested in the ATI Director or City Director of Planning position.

Slavin Management will begin recruitment efforts from scratch. Albany city leaders hope to get some qualified applicants.

"We've raised the bottom end of the salary from $55,000 to $65,000 and we've raised the top end of the salary from $70,000 to $85,000 so we hope to expand hopefully encourage more people to enter the marketplace and hopefully get more competitive folks," Albany Assistant City Manager James Taylor.

They hope to have a new list of finalists in about two weeks.
