NEWPORT-The Cocke County Legislative Body has delayed filling the board's position left vacant by the death of Bill Williamson last month.

In a called meeting Thursday, CLB members voted to have anyone from the Fifth District interested in serving to send resumes to County Mayor Vaughn Moore within the next two weeks. The CLB's General Committee will then review the resumes at a meeting at 5 p.m. Feb. 4, give each interested person five to seven minutes to address the committee, and then make recommendations to the full CLB for consideration.

Following a motion by CLB member Phil Killion and second from Dan Metcalf, members unanimously approved the measure.

The full CLB will then vote on filling the vacancy at its regular February meeting.

For more details, please see the weekend edition of the Newport Plain Talk.

CLB member Andrew Fowler said, "I would like to see some qualification" in filling the position.
