A Plymouth County resident and veteran is needed to fill the paid position of Plymouth County Veteran Affairs director.
Eugene Shultz died last month leaving the position vacant.
A public notice states that the Plymouth County Board of Supervisors and the county's Veteran Affairs Commission are asking for letters of intent and applications for the position.
The position requires a minimum of 20 hours a week and completion of a certification course within one year of hire, the notice states.
Veterans are asked to submit a written letter of intent, including interest in the position, qualifications and ability to serve, along with an application.
Applications are available to be picked up at the county auditor's office in the Plymouth County Courthouse, 215 Fourth Ave., S.E., Le Mars.
Applications and letters should be mailed to that address with attention to the Plymouth County Veteran Affairs Commission by Thursday, Jan. 31.
They may also be dropped off at the auditor's office until 5 p.m. that day.
Currently the county's Veteran Affairs Office is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
On those days the office is temporarily being staffed by Martin Balmer, who was the veteran affairs director prior to Shultz.
The Plymouth County Veteran Affairs Commission met Dec. 20 to determine how a new director would be selected.
