The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) voted 3-0 for approval at their Monday morning meeting.
Murphey served as the office’s top deputy.
“Wayne has the most experience,” District 3 Commissioner Monty Piearcy said. “I think he has been running it for the last couple years.”
Murphey thanked the three commissioners for their support.
“Thank you for your vote.”
Murphey will fill out the remaining two years of the four-year term.
Murphey was sworn into office Tuesday morning in front of family and coworkers by Judge Louis Duel.
