Some of the finalists in the Issaquah city administrator search also made the cut in a similar search in Oregon.
San Juan County Administrator Pete Rose and Robert Harrison, the city manager in Wyoming, Ohio, reached the final round in the ongoing Milwaukie, Ore., city manager search.
Milwaukie leaders and residents met and questioned five candidates late last week. Officials there could announce the top two candidates as early as Wednesday.
Prothman — a Bellevue search firm — is in charge of the searches in the Portland suburb and Issaquah.
The practice is common for candidates to be part of the search process in multiple cities at the same time.
Issaquah residents can meet the finalists at a public reception from 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Tibbetts Creek Manor.

The field to be the next Issaquah city administrator includes officials from Lake Forest Park, Yakima, Thurston County, San Juan County and Wyoming, Ohio.
The search to fill the No. 2 position at City Hall entered the final phase Monday, as Mayor Ava Frisinger released the names of the finalists.
The process had been kept confidential to shield the finalists from questions from their current employers about their job searches.
