City Manager Position

The City of Dothan is still waiting for word on an offer made to the leading candidate for the city manager's job.

The leading candidate for the city manager position has not officially accepted the job.

The City of Dothan offered Mike West the position. He is currently the city manager of Johnson City, Tennessee.

Johnson City is quite similar to Dothan, it has a population of roughly 60,000, possibly a mitigating factor that went in his favor.

After looking at 53 applicants and waiting 10 months, the city cannot officially make Mr. West their city manager, it has to be approved by the city commission.

It looks like next week's commission meeting will feature the vote to accept Mr. West as Dothan’s city manager. The next commission meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 28.
