McDougal, Filyaw, Bowe, Powers Eye Juvenile Court Judge Post

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

At least four attorneys are interested in applying for the post of Juvenile Court judge that is due to become vacant after the April 30 retirement of Judge Suzanne Bailey.

Those include Juvenile Court Magistrate Troy McDougal and attorneys Rob Filyaw, Ron Powers and Curtis Bowe.

County Commission Chairman Larry Henry said he expects several more candidates to come forward prior to the expected appointment on May 1.

The decision is up to the County Commission since the retirement is mid-term.

Chairman Henry said there was some discussion about making the appointment earlier, but he said he sees no reason to get ahead of the announced retirement date.

"That is when there will be an actual vacancy," he said.

Chairman Henry said the commission will likely have a 10-day application process in early April, then may have interviews on April 24 (and continuing on April 25 if necessary). 

The judge in Juvenile Court makes $156,789.

Judge Bailey, 63, has served as judge since she replaced Dixie Smith in 1990.
