County Commission set to appoint new probate judge

San Juan County Commission is scheduled to appoint a new probate judge during the 4 p.m. Dec. 15 meeting.

The County Commission could also approve a bid for renovations of the Totah Theater and will discuss a proposed boat launch ramp on the Animas River in Cedar Hill.
