PHOENIX -- Phoenix leaders are beginning a national search to find a replacement for outgoing City Manager David Cavazos.

Cavazos announced on Aug. 1 that he's stepping down to become city manager in Santa Ana, Calif.

He had been Phoenix's city manager since 2009.

Phoenix City Council members voted 8-1 Wednesday to hire an executive-recruitment firm to oversee the search process for Cavazos' successor.

It could take up to six months before Phoenix hires a new city manager, but Mayor Greg Stanton said he's not set on an "artificial timetable."
