WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Watertown’s interim city manager wants the job on a permanent basis.
Ken Mix confirmed he applied for the position, but declined further comment.
Watertown Mayor Jeff Smith said there are approximately 29 applications for the job, which pays between $110,000 and $130,000 a year.
Smith said 10 of the applicants are from the tri-county region.
According to Smith, city council will meet in executive session Monday to discuss the candidates.
He said he hopes to have a decision by November and a new city manager in place by January 1, 2021.
Lawmakers appointed Mix to the interim position in January after the resignation of city manager Rick Finn.
