If the conference board fails to appoint an assessor from the list of individuals on the register, the conference board shall request permission from the director of revenue to hold a special examination in the particular city or county in which the vacancy has occurred.  Permission may be granted by the director of revenue after consideration of factors such as the availability of candidates in that particular city or county.  The director of revenue shall conduct no more than one special examination for each vacancy in an assessing jurisdiction.  The examination shall be conducted by the director of revenue as provided in section 441.5, except as otherwise provided in this section.  The examining board shall give notice of holding the examination for assessor by posting a written notice in a conspicuous place in the county courthouse in the case of county assessors or in the city hall in the case of city assessors, stating that at a specified date, an examination for the position of assessor will be held at a specified place.  Similar notice shall be given at the same time by one publication of the notice in three newspapers of general circulation in the case of a county assessor, or in case there are not three such newspapers in a county, then in newspapers which are available, or in one newspaper of general circulation in the city in the case of city assessor.  The conference board of the city or county in which a special examination is held shall reimburse the department of revenue for all expenses incurred in the administration of the examination, to be paid for by the respective city or county assessment expense fund.  Following the administration of this special examination, the director of revenue shall certify to the examining board a new list of candidates eligible to be appointed as assessor and the examining board and conference board shall proceed in accordance with the provisions of section 441.6.
