Covington city council members made a decision on a search firm to help the city find and hire a new city manager at a called meeting Monday night.
The council voted 5-0 for the Mercer Group Incorporated to serve as the firm to assist the city. The council listened to two other presentations from Slavin Management Consultants and Weston House International. Another firm, Resource Management Acquisition, did not attend the meeting.
Each firm was given 20 minutes to present to council why they were the best firm for the city. Jim Mercer, president and CEO of The Mercer Group, told council he had 38 years of executive search experience and has personally conducted 2,000 searches.
