The city is looking at five candidates for city manager, a position the mayor is hoping to fill quickly.
Las Vegas resident Barbara Perea Casey, a former superintendent of West Las Vegas schools, had been on the list but she withdrew. There are no local residents among the finalists.
The Mercer Group Inc., a nationwide recruiting firm, presented the names of the finalists to Mayor Tony Marquez over the weekend. The mayor has said he wants a candidate with municipal government experience, which the five remaining finalists have.
