Anyone interested in being appointed to the positions of constable in the first, second, or third district may soon apply.
The county commission Tuesday night voted to advertise seeking applicants for the open seats.
Respondents will be interviewed by members of the county commission in an informal meeting. A vote will later be taken on filling the vacant seats at a regular meeting of the commission.
Constable terms are for four years. The last election for constables was in 2012. Five of the seven district seats were filled including Wayne Vanderpool in the third district, Paul Cantrell in the fourth district, Mark Milam in the fifth district, Carl Lee Webb in the sixth district, and Johnny King in the seventh district. No one ran for the positions in the first and second districts. However in recent months persons in those districts have expressed an interest.
Vanderpool has since passed away, creating a vacancy in the third district.
If the commission appoints persons to fill these three positions, the appointees would serve until August 31, 2014. Elections will be held in 2014 to fill the remaining two years of the terms.
