KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO) - After several hours of interviews, Kalamazoo City Commissioners have chosen Bob Murray and Associates to do the bulk of their search for a new City Manager.   Mayor Bobby Hopewell says they were all impressive.

Last night they voted by just a one vote margin to enter negotiations with the California based executive head hunting firm, and once the final contract is approved and signed, the search will begin.
