Thirty-four people applied for the Warren County codes/ environmental officer position which will become vacant at the end of August with David Smith changing jobs to work in the office of Property Assessor Beth Martin beginning Sept. 1.The list of people who applied for the position of codes/ environmental officer was impressive with several local contractors and well-respected businessmen among those who applied for the job.“Time are tough. Houses aren’t selling like they used to. These people are looking for steady work,” said Commissioner Wayne Copeland.It was asked that the names of the applicants not be released because many of them have other jobs that could be jeopardized.The committee, led by chair Ken Martin, discussed setting the cap on pay at $32,500 which is $18 less a year than Smith is making as codes enforcer now.
