The Cary Town Council held a second round of interviews this week to select the town’s new manager from three remaining finalists, including one from out of state.
On Monday and Tuesday, the council interviewed the three candidates in closed session at three separate special meetings. Two were held at area restaurants while one was in Town Hall council chambers. .
Mayor Harold Weinbrecht said a special meeting is scheduled at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7, in the Cary Town Hall council chambers. He could not confirm if a decision would be made that night.
The council is still on track to appoint a new town manager by the end of the year to replace longtime Town Manager Ben Shivar, who retired on Sept. 30.
Waters and Company Executive Recruitment, a Dallas-based firm conducting the search for a town manager, presented a recommended list of final candidates to the council this fall from 42 applicants. The council narrowed down the list of applicants to six finalists.
Initial interviews were held with those finalists in mid-November, and council members narrowed down the list further to three finalists.
Deputy Town Manager Mike Bajorek is serving as interim town manager. He has applied for the permanent position.
