On Monday evening, the next Charlotte city manager should be announced.
Multiple sources have said the city has made an offer and that it should be accepted by now.
Council could make it public and official at Monday's meeting.
Sources said city leaders offered the job to Ron Carlee, and City Council should make the information public within the next few hours.
The field was narrowed to three candidates; two men who already work for the city manager's office and Carlee, the one external candidate.
Eyewitness News was told council members spent the end of last week negotiating with Carlee and that they are still on-target to make the hire official Monday night.
Council members sent out a note indicating that there will be a short news conference sometime after 7 p.m.
Eyewitness News caught up with Mayor Anthony Foxx on Monday morning.
"This era in our city is a very important transition point for us, and we have thought a lot about that in the course of making a decision, and tonight, hopefully, the council will make a final call," said Foxx.
The salary for the new city manager has not been released yet. Salary is part of the negotiations process.
The last city manager, Curt Walton, was making $257,000 when he retired in December.
