Special filing offered in Prosser, Benton City

The Benton County Auditor plans to open a special three-day filing period for elected positions in Benton City and Prosser in August after the primary election.

The special filing period from Aug. 22-24 is needed because no one filed for the positions during the statewide filing period that ended Friday.

Open offices are: Benton City Council, Position 4; Prosser City Council, Position 7; and Tri-City Estates Water District commissioner, Position 2.

Candidates who file then will be on the ballot in the November general election.
