They then voted to hire Dylan Bentley to the position, effective Jan. 3.

The commissioners also recognized Cyndi Marshall, who is retiring after 51 years of service at the county treasurer’s office.

Holliday said it may be a record at the courthouse.

“I don’t know if there’s anyone who’s been here longer,” she said. “We bid her farewell and wish her well.”

The final meeting for the year of the commission was a short one. Commissioner Freddie Hayes Jr., whose term is ending, was not present.

Commissioner-elect Mike Finley was present for the meeting.

“We look forward to filling this seat,” Holliday said of the next meeting, for which Finley will be sworn in.
