On Saturday, November 23, the City Council will interview in closed session a short list of nine city manager candidates. Interviews may be in person or via video conference. As the candidates prefer. The agenda/packet for the Saturday, November 23, 2019, Special Richmond City Council Meeting is available on the web at http://sireweb.ci.richmond.ca.us/sirepub/meet.aspx. Names of candidates are not public at this time.
The tentative plan is that the field will be reduced to three candidates who will interview in person on December 7. The same day, the public will have an opportunity to meet them and hear their self-introductions as well as responses to a number of questions.
Presumably, the City Council will make an offer following the December 7 meeting.
Interim City Manager Falk plans to leave on January 15, so we hope to have a new city manager under contract and in office by that date.
