Special filing period opens in Benton County

The Benton County Auditor's office will open a special three-day filing period for city council races in Prosser and Benton City because no candidates filed during the regular filing period in June.

The auditor's office will accept filings for Prosser City Council Position 7 and Benton City Council Position 4 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday at the auditor's offices in Kennewick, Richland and Prosser.

The auditor's office also will accept filings for Tri-City Estates Water District Commissioner Position 2.
