Public Hearing Thursday on Pontotoc Districts

PONTOTOC, Miss. (WCBI) — Pontotoc residents can get a look at what their new city council districts will look

Aldermen will hold a public hearing at 6 Thursday night at City Hall to unveil the proposed redistricting plan. The proposal shifts voters from One and three to districts two and four to bring them in line with the “one-man, one-vote” court standard.

After the hearing, Aldermen will decide whether to adopt the plan and submit it to the U.S. Department of Justice. If approved, the new lines will be used for next year’s city elections.
