Supervisors holding hearing on adjusting their districts, Wednesday

By on Mon, September 5, 2011

The Board of Supervisors will hold a hearing on Wednesday September 7, at 1 pm, to consider proposals to adjust supervisorial district boundaries. The county is required to adjust boundaries following the decennial census to keep the population equal.

Although supervisors must live in “their” districts, they are elected by the county at large.

From the release:

Over the past eight weeks, five different supervisorial boundary adjustment workshop meetings were conducted throughout the county - each in a different location and supervisorial district. These workshops were facilitated by the League of Women Voters and provided residents with an opportunity to make comments and suggestions on the district boundaries.

Wednesday’s public hearing will be led by a committee of the board. Their recommendations will be taken to the full Board at its September 13 meeting.
