Hopkins County commissioners approved a plan this week to replace County Judge Chris Brown, who will be leaving the top county post in January to take over the Ark-Tex Council of Governments.

Brown had one year left on his county judge term. The plan is for the court to accept applications from interested persons and basically hire a replacement on a one-year contract, with next fall’s election determining a long-term answer.

Interested persons should submit a resume and cover letter for the current term for county judge, which is expected to be Jan 2nd – Dec 31st 2014.

The search will soon be on for a new leader in Hopkins County as Judge Chris Brown will be recommended by the Ark-Tex Council of Governments search committee for their position of Executive Director. The Ark-Tex COG will be meeting for a final vote on the position, which oversees a $15 million budget, on Thursday, Oct. 31 at 10 a.m. in Omaha.
