The Lancaster City Council seat vacated by Preston Blackmon's death will be available for filing later this month.
Blackmon, who died Saturday at age 82, served as the District 1 councilman for 31 years. Part of the last two years, he was absent from most meetings while battling illness.
Filing for that seat will open at noon Aug. 22 and will close at noon Sept. 4, said Lancaster County election official Cassie Stump.
About two years remain in Blackmon's term.
