City Manager's List

Dothan city officials have narrowed down a list of more than 50 applicants for the city manager's job.

Mayor Chester Sowell released the names of the finalists and two local candidates are still in the running.

The finalists include: Johnny Henderson, former Mayor of Enterprise; Mark Pool, Houston County Engineer; Rex Taylor, former city manager of Vero Beach, Florida; and Jeffrey Browtun, City Manager of Henderson, Kentucky, which is a community of about 27,000.

Mayor Chester Sowell came up with the finalists after city commissioners submitted their top choices from the list of applicants.

The mayor says he hopes to set up interviews with the final four contenders over the next two weeks.
