The top five applicants for two judicial commissioner positions will be interviewed Jan. 3 beginning at 5 p.m.The two jobs are available due to the resignation of Herb Rowland, who was a judicial commissioner for nine months, and the addition of a judicial commissioner to alleviate the heavy workload on the existing commissioners.Rowland is a former sheriff’s investigator who presently works as a security officer at Warren County Courthouse, a position he started in September.In a letter written to Warren County Commissioner Ken Martin, who is chairman of the county’s Policy and Personnel Committee, Rowland said, “This has been a tough decision for me; however, I find that even though I am retired I am working almost full time with my duties at the courthouse.”Rowland’s Saturdays being taken up is one reason the county will be hiring two judicial commissioners. “Herb worked Saturdays. It is hard to say you will be working only every other Saturday.
