The Lacey Fire District 3 Board of Fire Commissioners will interview nine candidates to fill a vacancy on the commission.
The interviews are set for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Lacey Fire headquarters station, 1231 Franz St. SE.
The meeting is open to the public.
Here are the nine applicants: Eric Allen, Dan Cathers, Gary Hartloss, William Jackson, William Miller, David Morrison, Paul Perz, Sylvia Roberts and Rob Stroud.
Biographical information was not immediately available for all of the candidates, although current fire commissioner Judy Wilson said Cathers and Hartloss have been past candidates for commissioner.
Perz currently serves on a citizen advisory committee to the commission, she said.
During the meeting, the candidates will each have 10 minutes to make a presentation to the board, Wilson said. They also will draw numbers to determine the order in which they appear before the board, she said.
The commission vacancy was created by Dennis Jones, who resigned in January because of health and personal reasons.
