UPDATE @ 10:30 p.m. (Nov. 29): Colin Baenziger, the consultant hired to recruit the next Fairborn city manager, interviewed city residents to fulfill that part of the hiring process.
“I’m in town to get a feel for the community, talk to the city council, find out what the issues are, how much they want pay the person and what the ideal candidate looks like,” said Baenziger, owner of Colin Baenziger & Associates Executive Recruiting.
“And tonight we’re going to talk to the public, to see what they think would be a great city manager.”
