About the Search & Finalists
The Lakeland City Commission has narrowed the list of City Manager candidates to three finalists during a meeting on October 9th. The search firm GovHR, lead by Heidi Voorees, originally provided a list of 16 candidates recommended for further consideration in the hiring process. The Commission then narrowed that list to six candidates that eventually turned to four semi-finalist candidates after Edward Phillips and Michael Moore dropped out due to them both accepting positions elsewhere.
Each of the candidates will be interviewed by the Lakeland City Commission on Tuesday, October 20th with the Commission making a final decision during a live meeting that will be held in the Lakeland City Commission Chambers (228 South Massachusetts Avenue) tentatively at 12:30 p.m., or approximately 30 minutes following their last interview. This meeting will be aired live on the City’s Government Access Channel available on Spectrum 643, Frontier FiOS 43 and streamed on LakelndGov.net/TV.
