The saga that has evolved into a national search for a new Scottsdale city manager could see its final chapter Thursday, Dec. 8.
Scottsdale City Council early next week is expected to interview two additional finalists — Queen Creek Town Manager John Kross and James V. Thompson, former Casa Grande city manager — both Dec. 7 and Dec. 8.
Scottsdale City Council is hosting a special public meeting Dec. 8 at City Hall, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd., during which each candidate will make a brief presentation and answer questions from the council.
Once interviews are complete, they will be among five final candidates the city council will consider for the job, city officials say. The council previously interviewed Konrad Hildebrandt, Gary M. Luebbers and Jeffery M. Nichols earlier this month.
