RIO DELL- On Tuesday, the Rio Dell City Council will review a list of applicants for their open City Manager position.

For the first time, the city has used an outside agency to advertise and recruit for the position. 

The current city manager, Jim Stretch, signed a two year contract and came out of retirement. Over the past few months the city has been accepting application, closing the process in April.

Jack Thompson, the Mayor of the town, said the next manager will have to demonstrate leadership and recognize the unique nature of the small community.

The council will meet in closed session at City Hall on Tuesday.
