Charlottesville residents say they want the next city manager to have experience and get out into the community to tackle issues.
 
The City Council held a public hearing Monday on its search for the next city manager.
 
The council was joined by Renee Narloch, president of S. Renee Narloch & Associates, the Florida-based firm the city has selected to lead the search process. The company is working on a $25,000 contract.
 
The firm is seeking a replacement for Maurice Jones, who left in July after the council announced it would not be renewing his contract. Jones was among several high-ranking city officials to resign or be fired following the Unite the Right rally.
