For the first time in two decades, LaRue County has a new master commissioner. Hodgenville attorney Thomas P. “Tom” Claycomb was sworn in last month by LaRue Circuit Judge Charles Simms III.
He takes over from attorney Carl Howell, who has retired.
The master commissioner assists circuit court in enforcement of duties – for example, conducting sales of property to satisfy liens, mortgages or claims of ownership. It’s commonly thought of as “selling at the courthouse door.”
