(1)  The county judge/executive shall be disqualified to act as county administrator by any fact that would disqualify a person under KRS 241.100 from acting as a member of the board.

(2)  If he is disqualified to act as county administrator, or if a vacancy in that office occurs for any other reason, the judge of the Circuit Court of that county shall appoint to that position a person at least thirty (30) years of age who, at the time of appointment, has been a citizen of the state and a resident of that county for at least two (2) years next preceding the date of appointment, and who is able to qualify.

(3)  The appointee shall serve during the unexpired portion of the term or until the county judge/executive is able and willing to qualify.

All administrative regulations and changes therein shall be approved as to legality by the Department of Justice before they are deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau pursuant to section 207.  1 In the event the Department of Justice shall rule illegal all or any part of any administrative regulations or changes therein, adopted by an agency which is by law independent of the policy supervision and control of the Governor, and such agency or party before such agency supporting such regulations or changes therein shall disagree with the ruling of the Department of Justice, such agency or such party may appeal from the determination of the department to the Commonwealth Court, whereupon the court shall direct the department to approve those parts of the administrative regulations or changes therein ruled illegal which the court finds to be legal. In all other cases the decision of the Department of Justice shall be final and shall not be subject to any form of judicial review at the instance of the agency, or any supporting party, but nothing in this section shall affect the right of any person adversely affected by a regulation or change therein to obtain a determination of the validity thereof in any appropriate proceeding.
