Rochester City Council will hold a rare Saturday meeting Feb. 23 to review applications for the vacant city manager position.
More than 50 people have applied for the job. Mayor Stuart Bikson said the council will review all the applications, though consultant Mark Nottley will do some pre-screening. Bikson said he's pleased with the interest in the job.
"We have had tremendous response from people all over the country," he said. "We think we are going to have an outstanding city manager to take over. ... We are very confident that very soon we are going to have a new city manager."
The meeting begins at 10 a.m. at the municipal building. 400 Sixth St. Interim City Manager John Hiller said the names of the applicants will not be released Saturday. Rather, each will be assigned a number.
