100 apply for Rehoboth Beach city manager job

The soon-to-be-vacant city manager position in Rehoboth Beach is attracting plenty of interest.

City Commissioner Patrick Gossett tells The Daily Times of Salisbury that 100 people have applied for the position. He says that’s higher than the average response for cities of similar size and budget.

The city is working with Cincinnati-based Novak Consulting Group to fill the position. The firm will recommend the top 10 to 15 candidates to the mayor and commissioners.

The city officials will interview three to five of those candidates face-to-face. The target date for those interviews is Nov. 8-9.

Current City Manager Gregory Ferrese’s last day will be Dec. 4.
