(CENTREVILLE) – The St. Joseph County Apportionment Commission is meeting today to further discuss the St. Joseph County Commission going to back having seven members.
In September, the Apportionment Commission released a new proposed apportionment map, which is proposing seven Commission districts. They are given the responsibility to come up with the boundary lines for the new Districts, based on information from the 2020 U.S. Census.
If approved there would be three changes to the Districts, compared to what is in place right now. The first would be the City of Three Rivers being it's own District. The other would be the City of Sturgis being split between three different districts: Districts 4, 5 and 7.
The third change would be Colon Township being divided between District 6 and District 7.
The Apportionment Commission is made up of County Clerk Lindsay Oswald, County Treasurer Kathy Humphreys, County Prosecutor Dave Marvin, County Republican Party Chair Rodney Chupp and County Democratic Party Chair Kathy Greaves.
They are meeting in Centreville at 11 AM and will take public comment on the proposed change.
