Everyone has a say in how the boundaries for the supervisor and community college districts will be redrawn in Gila County.
Not only will residents be urged to attend upcoming public meetings, but those with access to the Internet can also soon go online and draw boundary lines on county maps.
The county’s Web page for the Gila County Redistricting Advisory Committee will soon have a link to a tool with which to draw supervisor and community college district boundaries.
As explained by Tony Sissons at the May 10 redistricting meeting, the page will have easy-to-follow directions on the left side of the page.
There is no cost to use the tool and submitting proposed district boundaries is optional.
Linda Eastlick, director of the county elections department, said the tool should be available by this week.
To find the map tool, go to the county Web site: www.gilacountyaz.gov, and under the department listing, click on “elections.”
On that page, on the left side, choose “redistricting” and that will take users to the redistricting page, where the map tool will be located.
