TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)- There is a shorter list of candidates for the Twin Falls Economic Development Director. The city announced they have narrowed it down to three people including James Dinkle, Nicolas Gustafson, and Nathan Murray. The three are finalist in a nationwide search for a new director. The city started looking for candidates in March and took applications to May.  The city received 19 applications and worked with stakeholders to slim the list down to three.

Later this month the candidates will be invited for an on-site interview with the city. The former director position was held by Melinda Anderson who left in 2015 to work for Tualatin, Oregon. She held her position with the City of Twin Falls for about 10 years.
