Candidates have filed to run for seats on various Franklin County boards.

The candidates will appear on the April 2 ballot.

The deadline for candidates to file for the election was Jan. 15.

The director of the Meramec Ambulance District is on the ballot with two candidates: incumbent Dave Myers and Ronald Suerig, both of Pacific. It is a three-year term, and the position is unpaid.

A board seat on the Gerald-Rosebud Fire Protection District is also on the ballot. Two candidates have filed: John Zelch, of Rosebud, who is currently on the board, and James Hackstedt of Gerald. It is a four-year term, and the position is unpaid.

Zelch was recently appointed after a former board member resigned. He was appointed to serve until the next election.

A six-year board seat on the Pacific Fire Protection District is also on the ballot with two candidates filing: Chris Wymer and Edwin A. Bruns, who is the current chairman.

Pacific Fire Protection Board members make $100 a meeting, and there is one regular meeting a month.

Two candidates have filed for a three-year seat on the Washington Special Road District: incumbent Edward V. Fischer and Glennon A. Gildehaus, both of Washington. The position is unpaid.

No candidates have filed for the following seats: five-year term and one-year unexpired term on the Calvey Creek Sewer District; and five-year term and one-year unexpired term on the Crestview Acres Sewer District.

Calvey Sewer District Board members are unpaid. The Crestview Acres Sewer District could not be reached for comment to determine if those board members are paid.

It is unclear what happens to the vacant board seats if no one files to fill them.
