County approves redistricting plan

Cottonwood County Commissioners approved a plan to adjust three commissioner districts in the county.

After a public hearing was held at Tuesday’s meeting, the board adopted the plan, which calls for Great Bend Township to be removed from Commissioner District 3, currently represented by Donna Gravley, and placing it into District 4, currently represented by Norm Holmen.

To equalize the populations of the districts, Germantown Township was then moved from District 4 to District 1, represented by Larry Anderson.

Because of the district changes, all three of those positions will be on the November ballot. Districts 1 and 3 were already scheduled to be on the ballot for four-year terms. The position for District 4 will be on the ballot for a two-year term to return the county board to its normal election cycle.

More on Tuesday’s meeting appears in the April 20 print and e-editions of the Citizen.
