Danville has been without a permanent city manager and police chief for more than two months now and it will be awhile longer before either of the positions is filled.
The applicant pool for both jobs has been whittled down to a handful of semi-finalists who will be interviewed, but no interviews have been scheduled as of yet, said City Clerk Donna Peek.
The hiring process has been delayed, first by the budget and now by vacation schedules, Peek said.
Hiring a city manager to replace Darrell Blenniss, who resigned March 30, will take first priority. The goal is to fill that position by Aug. 1, said interim city manager Paul Stansbury, who was contracted from Bluegrass Area Development District to fill the job until a replacement is found.
Peek said 26 applied for the job and that pool has been reduced to nine people who will go through an initial round of interviews. Three finalists will be called back for second interviews before a decision is made, she said.
