(09/12/13) - Bay City, has been looking for a new city manager since February.
The search for a city manager has been an ongoing process since Robert Belleman left earlier this year. Acting city manager Dana Muscott says a consultant has been hired.
"They did come back to us with some applicants and the commission got a chance to review those applicants and they determined the top five or six that they were interested in, they've applied, three to five or six had taken jobs elsewhere," said Dana Muscott, Acting City Manager, Bay City.
The commissioners decided to advertise the position again - that could take as long as 45 days. Once the consultant is finished with background checks, the commissioners will start interviewing.
Muscott says the position could be filled closer to the end of the year.
