The search for a new city manager for Wichita is down to five finalists.
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.
