The Crossville City Council will meet Friday to discuss its continuing search for a new city manager following action Tuesday to rescind its offer to Jeffrey Skidmore. The meeting will begin at 1 p.m.

The council voted 4-1 to rescind the offer of employment Tuesday night.

Skidmore, speaking during the public comments portion of the meeting, said, "To say I'm in a state of shock would be a bit of an understatement at this point, but I just wanted to come before you for the record and say that I am still interested in the position."
