The four-judge executive committee received about 20 applications for the position and have interviewed five in recent weeks, Judge Zore said. The judges have narrowed the choice to a final applicant and Judge Zore said this morning an offer could be presented as soon as today. The person chosen would likely start in early July, he said.
The executive committee has been courting applicants since early April to replace Ron Miller, who started in May 2006 and gave a verbal resignation in late March. Senior Judge Richard Good has been filling in as interim administrator.
