WICHITA - The search for a new city manager for Wichita is down to five finalists. And they included Norton Bonaparte of Topeka.
The city said Friday the finalists include Topeka City Manager Norton Bonaparte, Jr. and Sedgwick County Manager William Buchanan.
Also making the cut are Floyd Johnson, executive director of the
Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency in Florida; Robert
Layton, city manager of Urbandale, Iowa; and George Noe, former
city manager for Corpus Christi, Texas.
The Wichita City Council and a citizens committee will interview
them next week.
The new city manager will oversee 3,100 employees and a $500
million annual budget.
Former City Manager George Kolb left the position in January
