SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Months after former Springfield City Manager Gino Grimaldi retired, the search continues for his replacement. City leaders are scheduled to meet Thursday at an executive session to discuss the city manager recruitment process. 

Grimaldi retired in June, and three finalists were named to replace him earlier this year. However, after the candidates met with the public, the City of Springfield decided to continue searching for new candidates.

Ultimately, Mayor Christine Lundberg and the city council will make their final decision on who will be the next city manager.
