City Manager Search to Save City Thousands

As the Lubbock city council prepares to begin their costly search for a new city manager, mayor Marc McDougal has proposed a means of saving the city thousands of dollars.

On Tuesday, the mayor suggested council members appoint a six member committee, with a seventh appointed by the mayor. The group would then be responsible for the job description, applications, interviews, and recommendations.

A commitee search would replace the need for hiring an outside firm thus saving the city to between $50,000 and $75,000. Mayor McDougal hopes to have the committee appointed at the May 8th City Council meeting and the position filled by year's end.
