A County Commission committee is recommending that the commission keep Randy Russell and Sharetta Smith as county magistrates without seeking other applicants.
Commissioner Marty Haynes, who heads the security and corrections committee, said he would take the recommendation to the full commission next Wednesday.
The commission last year had 17 applicants for the same two spots.
The commission then voted unanimously to keep Magistrates Russell and Smith.
Commission Chairman Fred Skillern said earlier that the commission has been happy with their performance, and he said it is an ordeal to go through the interview process.
The magistrates set bonds and sign warrants from an office at the county jail.
