No applicants yet for County Attorney

Boone County Commissioners expressed some surprise Monday when no applications were received for the vacant Boone County Attorney’s position.

Four application forms had been picked up during recent weeks, but none had been completed and submitted by Nov. 6.

Commissioners decided to make contact with the attorneys who picked up applications and discuss any problems the applicants might foresee with the position. They will also advertise the position again with an application deadline of Nov. 20, 2009.

The commissioners are seeking a new county attorney to fill the unexpired term of Dave Medlin, who resigned in October to take a position in the Hall County Attorney’s office in Grand Island.

The current term will expire Jan. 6, 2011. The current salary is $39,900 per year in addition to county insurance benefits.
