Council seeks input on proposed ward lines

The Biloxi City Council has scheduled two hearings to seek public input on the proposed boundaries for Biloxi’s seven wards.

Councilmembers will be elected from those seven wards in the 2013 municipal elections.

The public hearings will be Oct. 16 and Oct. 30 at 1:30 p.m. at Biloxi City Hall.

The council will be seeking input on three maps, known as Plan 5, Plan 6 and Plan 7.

Incidentally, the current ward lines were drawn in 2004 and are based on the city’s population as reflected in Census 2000. To see those pre-Katrina lines, which were used in municipal elections for 2005 and 2009, click here.
