Public hearing Oct. 8 on city redistricting plan
By JAMIE PATTERSON
A public hearing will be held on Oct. 8 for the city’s new redistricting plan that will include some voters being shifted to other wards.
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen seem pleased with the new plan and will more than likely approve it during the next board meeting.
Maps are available at City Hall, and the public’s input is welcome at the hearing in a couple of weeks.
The Central Mississippi Planning and Development District has visited with the city board on several occasions to produce a redistricting plan that meets city leaders’ requests. When CMPDD officials first appeared before the board, Ward 3 Alderman Clifton Jones asked them to return with a plan that would put more white voters in Ward 2 to ensure the board could have at least one white alderman.
