VALE – Vale city officials plan to begin interviews early in the new year to fill the vacant city manager position.

So far, the city has just one application, interim city manager Katy Lamb said last week.

The deadline for application is Dec. 31, said Lamb.

“The last time we did this it was within the last week we got all of them anyway. So, we are expecting a bunch in the next two weeks,” said Lamb.

Lamb was named interim . . .
