The San Antonio City Council have narrowed it down to eight people to be the next city manager.

The city received 31 applications from across the country earlier this month. San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg announced Friday that 12 applicants had met requirements of the job and eight have been selected for interviews.

San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg says the council will begin interviews with the city manager candidates Monday at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

“The next phase of the process will be the initial in-person interviews with internal and external candidates," he said. "After that is through, we will then select the finalist to move through a second round of interviews.”

Nirenberg said he hopes to have a new city manager in place by the end of this month.

Two council members were not present in the meeting: Greg Brockhouse of District 6, who chooses not to attend executive session meetings and the recently-appointed interim councilman of District 2, Art Hall.

Hall is not eligible to attend executive sessions due to a 10-day waiting period before he can participate in council meetings.

The new city manager will be limited to eight years and a maximum salary of 10 times the lowest-paid city employee, which is currently $312,000.

The council will begin interviews with the candidates Monday at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
