Six people from the fifth district have applied to fill the unexpired term of John Green on the county commission.
Those hoping to succeed Green on the commission are James Young, Anita Puckett, Hunter Hendrixson, Steven Cantrell, Eugene LaFever, and Rick Cantrell.
County Commissioners are expected to interview the applicants soon and then name one of them to serve out Green's term which runs through August 31, 2014.
Green turned in his resignation letter to County Mayor Mike Foster on Monday, April 8 stating that he had moved his permanent residence to White County.
The county recently advertised seeking applications from persons in the fifth district interested in filling the unexpired term. The deadline for submitting applications was Tuesday, May 28.
Green had served on the county commission for eleven years. He was first elected in 2002 and then re-elected in 2006 and 2010.
