The three candidates were culled from a list of candidates by a special selection committee. Committee members included Terry Keefe, Layton Police Chief; Bud Cox, Davis County Sheriff; and John J. Griener, Chief of Police in Ogden working with council observer Jeff Tingey.

The final selection could come as soon as council members' next scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 4.
"Based on tonight's discussion," Mayor James Behunin said to the candidates, "my sense is that you are making it a very difficult decision for us."
