JACKSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Jackson County Commission wants to fill a license inspector position left vacant after a controversial hire by the previous commission. This time, they plan to approach the hiring process a little differently.

The commission is expected to vote Monday night to advertise the vacant position of License Inspector. Commission Chairman Matthew Hodges said there were concerns about paying for the position, but he feels that if the right person is selected, the position will pay for itself.

The previous commission came under fire for hiring Tyler Smith, grandson of Commissioner Kenneth Smith, and who entered the drug court program on burglary and robbery charges.

Hodges said they hope to advertise the position for at least two weeks. If successful, Hodges hopes a new license inspector can begin by October 1.
