Commissioners eye redistricting
Howard County commissioners will meet with an Austin attorney in a special meeting Wednesday to discuss redistricting within the county's four precincts, a process made necessary by the latest census results.
According to County Judge Mark Barr, the 2010 Census identified some areas within the county where the population has become unbalanced, an issue the court will be expected to resolve by shifting precinct lines.
The meeting is expected to get under way at 10 a.m. in the commissioners courtroom, located on the third floor of the county courthouse. For more information, call 264-2202.
