City Council Districts
During the 2020 legislative session, the State passed a bill (HB413) requiring cities with populations over 100,000 people to create districts for City Council elections.
While that bill was under consideration, city staff identified several practical and process related issues with the bill as written and spent the past year working with the sponsor of the original bill and a representative of the Attorney General’s office to draft an alternative (SB1111). Unfortunately, that bill was returned to the sponsor requiring the City to create and implement city council districts based on the original bill (HB419, KNA I.C. 50-707A).
