Among the applicants are six people on Sculley's staff, including San Antonio Deputy City Manager Erik Walsh, Peter Zanoni, San Antonio Assistant City Manager Carlos Contreras, Lori Houston, Rod Sanchez and Maria Villagomez.

The City Council will begin reviewing candidates Monday and tentatively plan to have a public symposium for a finalist or finalists Jan 23.

The council will vote to appoint a new city manager and approve a contract on Jan. 31.
