Danville's city manager screening committee has narrowed the list of 25 applicants to 11.
The committee voted Tuesday for City Clerk Donna Groves, a member of the committee, to call and make sure the people are still interested in the position. The deadline for applications was July 8, and some commissioners said that some applicants may have already found other jobs.
Of those interested, the committee will check their references and do criminal background checks before narrowing the list down further.
Committee Chairman James Atkins asked City Commission Monday if the committee could conduct personal interviews of the candidates.
"We'd like to meet these folks," he said. "We're not going to try to bring all 11 to town."
Committee members talked Tuesday about narrowing the list to five candidates and three alternates, but voted to wait to see who was interested in the job and passed the reference and background checks.
