(Juneau) The Dodge County Board is holding a public hearing Tuesday evening on the new boundaries for county supervisor districts. The redistricting process for municipal, county, and congressional maps across the country was delayed and condensed following the late release of census data, which was hampered by covid.
After reviewing a variety of plan options, the Dodge County Redistricting Committee is recommending a Tentative Supervisory Plan. Following Tuesday night’s public hearing, the county board will consider adoption of the redrawn county supervisor districts. Once approved, the maps will be forwarded to municipalities to create aldermanic wards by an October 22nd deadline. The County Redistricting Committee will then recommend a final plan and hold another public hearing on November 2nd. The county board would then need to adopt the final plan at their November 9th meeting. Once approved, the new boundaries will be in place until the 2030 Census.
The map with proposed county supervisory districts can be viewed at the Dodge County Administration Building in Juneau. It can also be found on the county website; you will find a link along with the proposed map with this news story at dailydodge.com. Tonight’s public hearing will begin at 5:30pm on the first floor of the Administration Building.
