September 14th Brownsburg –
At a Glance:
A redistricting public hearing meeting has been scheduled for September 15th, 7:00pm at Eaton Hall.
The article continues:
September 1st, members of the Brownsburg Town Council held a public meeting to provide an overview of the Town Council Legislative Redistricting Process adopted by the council ( CLICK HERE for the 23 minute video of the Sept 1st meeting ). By law the districts must be redrawn following the most recent census, in this case the 2020 census data. COVID introduced nationwide delays in redistricting compliance.
This process has resumed for states, counties, and municipalities. The law permits 10% variance in population points between wards. The Town Council is perusing greater precision by attempting to maintain 5% population points between wards.
The current 5 wards will attempt to be maintained as similar as possible, naturally with adjustments as required. No new wards will be created as a result of this process. The redistricting is a non-partisan effort.
