LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - The three finalists for the Laredo City Manager Position met with the public Monday night and now they take on Laredo City Council.

On Tuesday, all three candidates went through formal public interviews where each person was given about 90 minutes to answer questions from council members and Mayor Dr. Trevino in order to prove why they deserve the position.

The council is still in executive session discussing their decision.

The finalist is expected to be chosen and announced on Tuesday publicly.

Council will then have a meeting at a later date to negotiate contracts and finalize the hiring process.

The starting date of the position has not been determined which will also be decided in said council meeting.

Council has now been in executive session for about an hour.

City officials say the interviews went well and the candidates have now left Laredo.

All that is left now is for the council to make their decision.

Some of the topics council asked the candidates about include international trade, airports and economic trade.
