Council considering city manager candidates

A brief special meeting of the Altus city council was held Tuesday evening in regards to hiring a city manager.

Although the agenda listed an executive session to discuss the employment, hiring and review of candidates for the position of a City Manager, those in attendance only received packets about candidates to be reviewed, and no decisions were made.

In January the council appointed Larry Shelton of Norman as the acting city manager after the termination of former city manager David Fuqua. City Attorney Catherine Coke was appointed between Fuqua and Shelton.

Fuqua only served eight months as city manager for Altus. No formal reason was given for his termination.
