MUSKOGEE -- The search for a new city manager in Muskogee continues, and the first phase of that process wraps up next week.
Applications for the position will be accepted through Sept. 30.
The position was left open in July, when Greg Buckley resigned.
Roy Tucker, the city’s former city attorney, is currently acting as the interim city manager.
About 60 candidates have applied so far.
“Once we start to review applications, those 60 will come up with the top 10 and those will be evaluated and the interview process will begin,” said Kimbra Scott with the City of Muskogee.
The city hopes to begin the interviews and selection process within the next month.
