Stokes County officials are hoping to have a full-time county manager by March, officials said yesterday.
"It is very important to all of the county commissioners to get a county manager in place as soon as possible," Leon Inman, the chairman of the board of commissioners, said. "We hope that we have a good pool to chose from.
"Ideally, we would like to have someone on board by March."
The county manager is the highest administrative position and is responsible for daily county operations and reports to the commissioners.
The deadline for applications to be submitted to county offices for the position is today. About 20 applications have been received.
