CHINA GROVE ó Aldermen are making plans to interview three applicants for the town manager’s job.
The town received 22 applications for the job. During a closed meeting last month, the board narrowed the list to four.
Mayor Don Bringle said town officials dropped one of the four candidates from the list after a preliminary investigation.
Bringle said the three remaining candidates have experience managing towns in North Carolina.
All-American Associates, a consulting firm based in Mount Airy, is assisting the town with the search.
An employee of the same company, Bill Pless, is also acting town manager.
Bringle said the board expects to schedule special session to interview the applicants, possibly later this month or next month.
“We haven’t set a time frame. We’re not in a big rush,” Bringle said.
The position is advertised with a negotiable salary depending on experience.
Bringle said it’s likely the town will have to pay $60,000 to $70,000 a year, more than what the previous manager made.
Eric Davis left in August to become manager of Mount Holly.
Aldermen met in closed session Tuesday night for a personnel session. Bringle said the session dealt with the police department.
