By  | 

Topeka, KS (WIBW) City manager Norton Bonaparte will not be going to Wichita for a city manager position there.

Wichita city council members went into executive session Friday for over two hours in an effort to make their decision, no decision was made. They met again at 2 p.m. Saturday for over an hour and narrowed their choice from five to three; Bonaparte was cut from the running as well as Floyd Johnson.

The council has asked for a consultant to be brought in to help them with their decision. They have chose Robert Layton, Bill Buchanan and George Noe as their finalists.

On Wednesday Bonaparte went to Wichita for an interview. He was back in Topeka Friday night at city hall, he was not available for comment.

A final decision is now not expected until at least sometime late next week.
