The County Commission voted unanimously on Wednesday to fire Magistrate Stuart Brown.
It did so on the recommendation of Chief Magistrate Lorrie Miller, who said he was continuing to make mistakes.
The commission earlier had voted 5-4 not to terminate Magistrate Brown. However, the commission now has three new members after the recent election.
The commission will begin taking applications for his replacement soon. Candidates will be interviewed on Sept. 26 and the commission will make a choice on Oct. 3.
They may apply starting Thursday through the following Thursday (20th) at 4 p.m.
At a committee meeting prior to the regular commission meeting, the commission heard from both Chief Magistrate Miller and Magistrate Brown.
Chief Magistrate Miller said he had been making mistakes as late as Sunday night, including one on a search warrant that could be "catastrophic."
Magistrate Brown said he did not know of any mistakes he was making and said he had been double checking his own work.
The commission now must hire a replacement magistrate. The magistrates set bonds and sign warrants from an office at the county jail.
The commission recently voted to raise the pay from $65,000 to $80,000, with $4,000 annual raises after that until they reach $92,000. The chief magistrate gets 10 percent above that. The magistrates are now able to get county insurance and other benefits.
