If the City Council has agreed on who the next city manager should be, they’re keeping a lid on it until their man or woman is locked down.

After spending three hours behind closed doors grilling Mary Jacobs, assistant Sierra Vista city manager, and Cochise County Administrator Michael Ortega on Wednesday, the council’s only public action was to direct City Attorney Mike Rankin to “proceed as discussed” in the closed meeting.

While council members offered no details about that private discussion, in the past that has typically meant negotiating a contract with the first choice before any announcement. They gave no indication when the selection could be finalized.
