OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Owensboro officials say there will now be a special election in November for the second and final year of the open Commissioner spot.

They’ll still pick someone from applications at their May 16 meeting, but that person will only serve until December 31.

It’s to fill the Commissioner seat of Larry Maglinger, who passed away last month.

Applications can be picked up at City Hall from 8 a.m. to 5.p.m.

The deadline to submit is May 11. The Owensboro Board of Commissioners meeting on May 16 is at 6 p.m., and will be open to the public.

Officials say this change was made after further review of state procedures.
