City officials say some 20 people submitted applications for the position left vacant after commissioners voted not to renew the contract of the former city manager.
Commissioners want to find the most qualified person to address all the city's needs.
James Catron said, "We want someone who can address problems as good personal relations in the community that is quite diverse in terms of population, a community with economic issues."
The final four vying for the job are:
* Lester Baird - a former Belle Glade city manager.
* Harold Emrich - a former county administrator.
* Rick Davis, who is serving as interim city manager.
* Charles Hitchcock - the city's director of community development.
