Field narrowed to five for Atherton interim manager post

The Atherton City Council has narrowed its field of candidates for the interim city manager job to five, and has asked the city attorney to conduct background checks and set up interviews with the candidates.

The council met on Saturday, Nov. 6, and reviewed applications in closed session. City Attorney Wynne Furth said the town had received more than 50 applications for the short-term post.

As of The Almanac's press time, town officials were trying to set a date for a special meeting, perhaps early next week, which will include an extended closed session to interview candidates.

The council wants "to proceed expeditiously" in naming the interim manager, Ms. Furth said last week, and may do so at its regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 17.
