SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

The city of Sylvester is narrowing down contenders for the city manager job. 

Current city manager Deborah Bridges is set to retire in November.

Mayor Bill Yearta said they received around 20 applicants and will scale it down to five.

The city hopes to fill the position soon so the new city manager will be up to speed on ongoing city projects. 

"Ms. Bridges can fill them in on the projects we're working on," said Mayor Yearta. "We're finishing up our airport, we've got a number of infrastructure projects we're working on.  We also have to rehab City Hall.  We're in the process of working on that."

Applicants must have a minimum of four years of experience as either a city manager or an assistant city manager.
