An update on the process or redrawing the City Council district lines is underway. The 2020 census results show that the present lines do not have the same number of people in every district.
Monday the City Council heard from consultant Cedrick Floyd of Data Center, LLC. Floyd stressed that “We will have to adjust to be within 10%. We have election qualifying in January, so we need to get this done before Christmas.”
Floyd said, “All we will do is changing districts as little as possible and keep within the 10%. Also, we will have no incumbents within the same district.”
The consultant said he would be meeting with individual council members and he would be available to meet the public at a workshop during this process.
