The selection of councilmember district maps for the 2022 election tops the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting of the Westminster School District.
The fourth and final public hearing on redistricting will be held starting at 8 p.m., and after hearing input from the public, the council will take on the task of selecting a map composed of four districts – as presently done – and an alternate five-district map.
Picking a five-district map is made necessary by a ballot measure going before voters in June asking voters to decide whether to eliminate direct election of the mayor and go to that post being rotated among the five councilmembers. That, in turn, would result in five councilmember districts.
Also on the agenda for Wednesday will be a proposed resolution “in support of denouncing and debunking fake news,” as well as an item on selecting a location for placement of the controversial Quang Tri Monument.
The council will meet virtually via teleconference and web conference beginning at 5:30 p.m. for a closed session and the open session at 7 p.m.
