Additional Comments:

A motion was made to consider hiring an outside firm to conduct a nationwide search for a new City Manager. The motion, recited by the city attorney, was to direct staff to go out for RFP to find a search firm for the city manager search while at the same time retaining the short listed candidates currently in the candidate pool from the in-house search. The motion passed three to two.
