The top candidate for the Steubenville City Manager's job has rejected the city's job offer and accepted a job in another town.
The candidate was waiting to hear back from the other town as they finished a background check before rejecting Steubenville's offer. He took a job with a town in Kansas, where he is from.
Mayor Dominick Mucci will continue to act as City Manager.
Steubenville councilman Kenny Davis says they will begin accepting applications starting on Friday and will accept applications until October 11. After that, the city will begin interviewing candidates and hope to have a new city manager by November.
