JAL, NEW MEXICO - The City of Jal is still looking to hire a city manager.

The position has been open for about 2 weeks now but so far, only three candidates have applied.

You may remember the former manager, Eva Sanchez-Bruce turned in her resignation this summer, after an internal investigation.

City officials won't say what Sanchez-Bruce was accused of, only that it involved possible violations of state policy.

Jal's Mayor tells NewsWest 9, they plan to leave the position open for a few more weeks, before a committee selects a finalist.
