The Carroll County Legislative Body will be filling an empty commissioner position and a vacancy on the County Board of Education during the Nov. 9 meeting, which will be held at the Carroll County Civic Center, starting at 7 p.m.
Commissioners will be appointing someone to fill the vacancy left by former District 2 commissioner Bobby Argo, who recently resigned.
They will also be appointing a new school board member for the District 2 seat. That seat has been vacant since August as former District 2 school board member Tonya Stepp did not seek re-election in the Aug. 6 election and no-one else ran for that position.
For both vacancies, attending members of the public will be allowed to offer nominations, and commissioners will vote on those nominations.
