The Contra Costa Water District has decided to fill a board vacancy by appointment rather than special election, and has set 5 p.m. Nov. 21 as the deadline for candidates to apply.
The vacancy occurred because of the recent death of Karl Wandry, a water board member for a decade.
Candidates must live in CCWD Division 5, which includes Oakley and portions of Antioch, Brentwood, Bethel Island and unincorporated county areas.

The water board plans to pick the new board member Dec. 17.
