Three top candidates have been selected in the hiring process to replace Paso Robles City Manager Jim App after he retires at the end of the year.
A City Council-appointed panel of residents and city leaders interviewed six applicants on Sept. 24, and selected three to come back for further consideration, according to the city.
The three candidates are from Arizona, California and Oregon. Additional information about them has not been disclosed.
The trio will return for additional interviews with City Council members in mid-October.
“Once the mid-October interviews are complete, it is likely that the council will focus on a single top candidate,” App said.
Paso Robles received 47 applications for the job.
App announced in February his plans to retire after 18 years as city manager. He previously worked as assistant city manager and personnel analyst.
