The public can meet the finalists in a nationwide search for a new general manager for the city's electric department, Denton Municipal Electric, in a public reception later this month.
The executive search firm Ralph Andersen and Associates is helping the city government winnow a pool of 111 applicants to finalists this week.
City officials said they expect to announce the finalists on Monday and will be scheduled with an interview with City Manager Todd Hileman later in the week.
Denton Municipal Electric ratepayers can meet the finalists in a community reception from 5:45 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Civic Center, 321 E. McKinney St.
Hileman invites residents and ratepayers to meet the finalists and provide their own feedback.
