Worcester City Councilor Kyrstian King, chair of the Municipal and Legislative Operations Committee, tells us about the process and timeline for selecting the next City Manager. King says the people of Worcester deserve a nationwide search. Assistant City Manager Eric Batista will most assuredly become the Acting City Manager on June 1st. The salary negotiations for the Acting City Manager are just wrapping up. King spoke about the exemplary job the School Committee did in their search for School Superintendent and their having put together an ad-hoc committee as an example the City Council may follow. A search firm will be engaged to help in the process. The search is expected to take 6-9 months and Batista will be among those looked at for the job.
