Committee plans to appoint Meyers replacement
Johnson County plans to appoint a supervisor to fill just over a year of the late Larry Meyers' term.
The committee of the auditor, recorder and treasurer has tentatively scheduled an Oct. 28 date for the appointment. The application deadline is Oct. 16.
The signature threshhold for a special election is 7,299 (10 percent of the `08 presidential vote).
Meyers' term was set to run through Dec. 31, 2010. But any appointee would leave office as soon as the results of the November 2010 election are certified.
