A committee of three Councilmembers (to be determined by Council motion) will review and compile the Councilmembers' rankings and determine which applicants will be interviewed by full Council.

The full Council will interview the top candidates. Interviews will be open to the public, conducted during a properly noticed Council meeting and will take place on Feb. 3, 2016.
