Burlington, Vt., discusses redistricting

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The mayor and a special committee of the City Council in Burlington are encouraging the public to take part in a meeting about redistricting.

The next meeting will be held Tuesday at 6 p.m. in City Hall's Contois Auditorium.

Mayor Miro Weinberger says he and the committee welcome and encourage Burlingtonians to share their thoughts and ideas as the process continues.

Ward boundaries for all seven wards are being redrawn after the city determined that Wards 1, 4 and 7 are outside the limits for approximately equal representation, based on the 2010 census. The Committee is considering changing the number of wards, councilors and school board members.
