Placeholder Image
Commissioners voted last week to officially begin the search for an applicant to fill an internal legal services position that, if accepted, would be the first on-staff attorney the county has ever seen. A job opening for the position is now posted on the Dawson County Government website, listing the scope of performance and job requirements, which were set by a committee after their initial meeting on Dec. 12. According to the job posting, applicants "must possess a Juris Doctorate with at least seven years' work experience in a law-related field pertaining to county government, be a member in good standing with the Georgia Bar and admitted to practice law in the Superior Courts of Georgia," among other qualifications.
