It’s down to the final four for the city manager’s job in Fort Worth.

Candidates from Cincinnati; Davenport, Iowa; El Paso; and Tyler will interview with council members today. All four finalists are from outside the city, making it the first time the City Council has hired an outsider since 2001.

Mayor Betsy Price said the city is looking for a city manager who is fiscally responsible, knowledgeable about pension reforms and tech savvy.

“They are all excellent candidates, and I think everybody is excited about them all,” Price said. “Everybody brings a little bit different skill set, and we continue to want the very best candidate for Fort Worth.”

Price said a single candidate could emerge after today’s interviews, or the field could be narrowed, which would require another round of interviews.

The four finalists are: Milton R. Dohoney Jr., former city manager in Cincinnati; Mark McDaniel, city manager in Tyler; Craig Malin, city administrator in Davenport, Iowa; and Joyce Wilson, city manager in El Paso.
