Buffalo Rapids Board of Control Commissioners Barry Rakes and Ray Roethle have re-filed to serve for another 3-year term.
Roethle serves as commissioner for district I, while Rakes serves as commissioner for district II of the irrigation project, which runs through portions of Custer, Prairie and Dawson counties.
The filing deadline was Feb. 18. With no other candidates filing, there will be no election.
A candidate for the member-at-large commission seat, currently held by Ric Holden, will be appointed at the May 12 re-organizational meeting. District I commissioner Don Buxbaum is in charge of finding a candidate from division 2 of district I for the one-year seat.
The BR Board of Control will remain intact until the irrigation project is split between the two districts.
