The committee was to meet Thursday at 7 p.m. in the county administration building to review the applications and make its recommendation.
The commission has 45 days to appoint a new treasurer once the names reach them, he said.
Ellis announced his retirement twice, once prior to the tax season and again just recently, after 12 years of public service. He said he wants to pursue personal interests.
