Virginia Beach is scheduling interview times for its next city manager even as it continues to accept applications for the position.

Mayor Will Sessoms asked councilmembers on Tuesday to keep three December dates open to talk to candidates, one of whom could be hired by year’s end to succeed longtime city manager Jim Spore.

In an interview Wednesday, Sessoms would not say how many applications the city has received. It will stop accepting them on Nov. 10, he said. Choice candidates from that pool will be invited for an interview.
