The town of South Prairie needs candidates for mayor and one seat on city council.
The Pierce County Auditor has opened a special three-day filing period — from June 5 to June 7 — to entice people to run for the elected seats that saw no candidate filings during the regular filing period.
The 434-person town of South Prairie, southwest of Bonney Lake and located along state Route 162, is one of two Pierce County city governments to see unfiled positions. The other is the City of Roy, south of Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Likewise, the auditor seeks candidates for two open seats on Dieringer School District’s board of directors.
Filing will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during the special filing period. Eligible candidates will be able to file on the Candidates page of the Pierce County Auditor’s website.
