Applications are now being accepted for a new county judge after County Judge John Horn died suddenly in September.
Commissioner Jim Latham is currently filling in as judge pro tem while the search takes place, however, he is set to retire from Precinct 4 at the end of the year.
Applications will be accepted through the end of the year and should list the qualifications of each candidate. Once submitted, county commissioners will meet to review the applications, which will be public record.
Commissioners are expected to make a selection by Jan. 2, 2019.
