The search for a new Joliet City Manager has begun and the clock is ticking. The Joliet City Council on Tuesday voted 5-3 to hire Slavin Management Consultants. They said the process should be wrapped up within three months. Joliet Mayor Bob O’Dekirk is against the idea and said there are local candidates that can do the job. The cost of the search by the consultanting firm is just under $24,000.
