The Roane County Commission is planning to fill the vacant seat in District 6 during its Nov. 9 meeting.
The seat became open following the Sept. 30 death of Bobby Collier, who had served on the Commission for 17 years.
The Nov. 9 meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at the Roane County Courthouse in Kingston.
The Commission will have a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. for anyone interested in being appointed to the vacant seat.
Anyone appointed can also run for the seat in the Aug. 4, 2016, election.
