By Pat Sunderland

Delta Mayor Ed Sisson reports the search for a new city manager is moving forward as anticipated. The city's consultant, The Mercer Group of Carbondale, told Sisson 45 applicants had indicated interest in the position by the Oct. 9 application deadline. The consultant has placed 15 of the most experienced and talented applicants in the "top tier" and will begin narrowing down the list of prospective applicants for council review. Sisson said the council expects to receive a list of eight to 10 candidates for the first round of interviews.
