After a thorough review of 100 applicants, seven candidates have been selected as finalists in the search for Clawson’s new City Manager. Public interviews will be held on Thursday, March 14 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at Clawson City Hall, followed by a community reception from 5 to 7 pm, where residents can mingle with the candidates and hear short, prepared remarks. Community members are encouraged to attend, meet the candidates and complete anonymous feedback forms which will then be shared with City Council. Read about the finalists.
