The county Board of Supervisors is scheduled to choose new supervisorial boundaries reflecting the county's new population.
An ad hoc committee consisting of senior county staff, elected officials and community members submitted four alternatives for the board to consider. The alternatives were then presented to the public at several hearings. The board reportedly directed staff to make some modifications and come up with a fifth alternative expected to be adopted at Tuesday's board meeting.
The board meets in open session at 9:30 a.m. in the County Administration Center, 940 W. Main St., El Centro.
The new boundaries are intended to reflect the county's 2000 census count, and the districts are required to contain as close to the same number of people as possible. The board has given itself until late this month to formally adopt a redistricting plan to allow potential candidates to review the new districts and where they reside.
