The City of Burien announced Tuesday (Feb. 4) that it’s inviting residents to meet finalists for the City Manager position on Friday, Feb. 28 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Burien Community Center. Four to six finalist candidates will be given a staff-led tour of the city, and will also take part in a reception for the general public. The City Council will meet in executive session Feb. 10 to discuss and identify four to six semi-finalists for the position. On Jan. 23, the Council reviewed the candidate pool from the 46 applications received and identified semi-finalists. These candidates were asked to respond to 20 written questions and five videotaped questions. On March 1, interviews will be conducted by the City Council in executive session. The City leadership team and a panel made up of City advisory board representatives also will interview the finalists. The Council hopes to make its final decision on Burien’s next City Manager at its March 3 meeting. The selection will be made public at the March 17 Council meeting after a contract is negotiated. The Burien Community Center is located at 14700 6th Ave SW.]]>
