*CORRECTION: Margrace Buckler, director of the Columbia Department of Human Resources, said the names of potential candidates for city manager will not be released to protect confidentiality. A previous version of this article misstated the reason for not releasing the names.

COLUMBIA — The deadline to apply for Columbia City Manager is today at 5 p.m.

Affion Public, a Pennsylvania-based strategic consulting and advisory services firm, is acting as a third party in the selection process. Columbia City Council will hold a closed meeting with Scott Reilly, the chief executive officer of Affion, on March 8.

Reilly will have compiled a list of five to six applicants to replace current City Manager Bill Watkins. *Margrace Buckler, director of the Department of Human Resources, said the names of potential candidates will not be released to protect confidentiality.

The City of Columbia's website lists the City Manager's job description.

Buckler said the council plans to interview the final candidates March 18-20. The dates for a public forum with the candidates have not yet been set.
