IMPERIAL — A new city manager could be appointed here as early as Wednesday.

In special closed-session meetings of the Imperial City Council on Friday and Saturday, five candidates were interviewed for the position of city manager.

City officials would not disclose the names of the candidates interviewed.

The candidates are part of a second-round attempt by the City Council to find a permanent city manager after the Aug. 31 resignation of former City Manager Jeannie Lenefsky.

A previous search for a permanent city manager ended after the council could not reach an agreements on a labor contract with the final candidate.


Lyle Alberg, a former Hemet city manager, has served as interim city manager in Lenefsky's stead.

A discussion/action item regarding the position has been placed on the agenda for the next council meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday in council chambers.

Staff Writer Anthony Longoria may be reached at 337-3452.
