POLL: Who should be Red Bank's new city manager?

The Red Bank Board of Commissioners decided to delay their vote Tuesday evening on the town's next city manager.

The commission called a meeting for Dec. 13 to make their choice.

During the commission's agenda session Tuesday afternoon, commissioners unsuccessfully tried to narrow their list of candidates.

Commissioners Ruth Jeno and Floy Pierce said they were hesitant to name their top picks.

"I'd rather not say anything right now," Pierce said.

During the agenda session, Commissioner John Roberts asked if discussion and voting could be postponed another week, saying he couldn't make the night meeting because he was going to a birthing class with his wife.

Mayor Monty Millard and Vice Mayor Jones objected to delaying the vote.
