The San Marcos City Council has narrowed its search for a new city manager to three candidates after two days of interviews with five candidates.
The finalists are Round Rock City Manager Jim Nuse, Kilgore City Manager Jeffrey Howell and Peoria, IL, City Manager Scott Moore.
The city council will bring back the three finalists for a second round of interviews and a public meet and greet to be held on Sept. 22. The meet and greet will take place at the City of San Marcos Conference Center from 5- 6:30 p.m.
The council also interviewed Lawton, OK, Assistant City Manager Bryan Long and Lake Jackson, TX, Assistant City Manager Modesto Mundo this week.
The city manager candidates also met with Interim City Manager Laurie Moyer and her staff. They also toured the San Marcos community.
Kay Stroman of the Stroman Group, which is coordinating the search and selection process for the city manager and city clerk positions, narrowed the original group of city manager applicants to approximately 25, and then to seven. Those seven were presented to the city council on Sept. 7.
The council selected the five candidates to interview in person.
The city council’s original timeline called for the selection of a city manager next week.
Stroman still is accepting applications for the clerk post through Sept. 17.
