Fire Marshal Joe Stewart is back on the job for the next six months.
The Ellis County Commissioners Court met at 10 a.m. Tuesday before adjourning to a 45-minute-long executive session, after which they voted unanimously to approve a six-month term for Stewart.
County Judge Carol Bush did not directly answer why the court chose a six-month term as opposed to a two-year term they last granted Stewart in 2012.
