County commissioners to eye redistricting

June 25, 2011

Howard County commissioners will consider approval of a redistricting plan for the county's four precincts Monday, as the government agency looks to realign its political boundaries following the 2010 Census.
According to County Judge Mark Barr, commissioners have three redistricting plans they are considering.
“We recently met with Bob Bass from Allison, Bass and Associates to discuss the necessary changes,” Barr said. “We have to redraw the lines to keep the precincts in line with the results of the census. I expect we'll be able to make a decision on the matter Monday.”

While the latest news coming out of Austin certainly can't be described as good, at least officials are getting a firmer idea on just how much money they'll receive.
