County Commissioner Kenneth Rogers put a spin on the way interviews for the position of county codes enforcer went Monday night. Normally, commissioners on the Policy and Personnel Committee, along with County Executive John Pelham, take turns asking the candidates questions.Prior to the interview session, Rogers referred to an Attorney General opinion which states it is the county executive’s job to conduct interviews and make a decision appointing department head positions.
