Seven people have applied for the open Scotts Bluff County Correction Director’s position that became vacant following the resignation of Ron Johns this past summer.
Scotts Bluff County Board Chair Mark Masterton is pleased the county has a good pool of candidates to consider following a nationwide search.
The candidates are from Wyoming, Nebraska, and Indiana. Masterton says it is too early to provide any specifics on the candidates. After recently completing interviews the county is doing background and reference checks. Masterton anticipates a decision will be made in approximately a month.
Patricia Miller has been appointed the Interim Director.
