Sahuarita leaders will interview three candidates for the town manager job this week.

The finalists are Himanshu Patel, former town manager of Florence; Kelly Udall, town manager of Pinetop-Lakeside; and Robert Yandow, town manager of York, Maine, and former city manager of Bisbee.

The public may meet them at a reception at 6 p.m. Friday at Town Hall, 375 W. Sahuarita Center Way.

The Town Council could select the next town manager at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Town Hall.

The new hire will replace Jim Stahle, who has been town manager since 2001. The Town Council voted last year not to extend his contract, which expires at the end of June.
