The Crossville city council approved reopening the search for a new city manager and will accept additional applications until January 15 before moving on toward a final choice.
Council discussed doing some video interviews with applicants already received.
Council member Pamala Harris brought up the topic saying that due to a change in the dynamic of the council she moved to to give additional applicants a chance to apply by re-advertising the search and accepting applications through January 15, 2017. Mayor James Mayberry seconded the motion.
Mayor Mayberry said they were not taking any of the previous applicants out of the running and said discussion included that previous applicants would not need to resubmit unless they wanted to update their resume.
Human resources manager Leah Crockett was instructed to contact the previous applicants and let them know what the council's plan was and that they did not have to reapply as they would remain under consideration.
The motion was unanimously approved.
