Ocean City could hear from the leading candidate to become the resort’s next city manager.
He was given until 5:30 pm this afternoon.
On a 4-to-3 vote the Town Council okayed negotiations for the position after the ouster of Dennis Dare nine months ago.
Council President Jim Hall said that if the answer is no then a consulting firm will be allowed to resume a nationwide search for a new candidate.
The name of the candidate under consideration has not been made public.
