Riverside city manager interviews underway

Interviews for the next Riverside city manager continue tonight and through Thursday.

Ten candidates are under consideration, according to Mayor Bill Flaute. The interviews began last Tuesday.

The interviews are the next step in Riverside’s venture to find a new administrator for the Dayton suburb.

Former Riverside City Manager Bryan Chodkowski resigned in January after nine years with the city. He was hired as manager of Enfield, Conn., in April.

Chodkowski’s departure opened a vacant position that was briefly filled by Assistant City Manager Emily Christian before Interim City Manager James Percival was named.

Percival said Tuesday that Christian, an employee with the city since 2012, is leaving the city June 10 to begin a position in Miamisburg.

This news organization filed a public record request with Riverside to obtain the city manager applicant names. We will update this story when city officials respond.
