Potter County Commission votes to vacate constable position

Amarillo, TX - By a vote of four to one the Potter County Commission today has decided to vacate the office of Precinct Four Constable.

Precinct Four is currently vacant following the death of Leon "Bubba" Smith last month.

Commissioner Alphonso Vaughn was the sole dissenter.

Commissioners could have voted to appoint someone to finish Smith's term.

If no one runs for the seat in the next election, it will stay vacant.

By state law, if a constable position is left unfilled for seven consecutive years, it will disappear
