White named interim county attorney

OSKALOOSA — The Mahaska County Board of Supervisors accepted County Attorney Rose Anne Mefford’s resignation Monday as she takes the bench as a district associate judge.

The supervisors also named former Assistant County Attorney Misty White as the interim county attorney until a new county attorney is selected. White assumed her duties Monday and will be paid on an hourly basis of $40.79 per hour.

The supervisors also decided to choose the new county attorney by advertising the position and appointing the best candidate — the method county supervisors used before to select Mefford.

“It’s probably the quickest way,” Board Chairman Greg Gordy said.

Gordy said an ad would run for about a week in The Oskaloosa Herald and online — until the end of March. Then, applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. April 5. During the week of April 8, the supervisors will evaluate candidates and schedule interviews. Then, a new county attorney will be selected at the April 15 supervisor meeting.

Supervisor Mark Doland was absent from the meeting.
