The City of Bend continues its search for an Assistant City Manager. Current City Manager Eric King has twice now rejected all the candidates hoping to fill the post. King says he’s looking for someone to handle the City’s highest profile projects so he feels he must be “picky”. An article in the Bulletin says the Assistant City Manager would be responsible for projects involving infrastructure, economic development and planning. King says he feels the current job market allows for the selection of a "top-notch" candidate, so he feels like he shouldn't "settle".
