Report: County Council districts not proportional

A website makes the case that the districts for Wells County Council members are out of compliance with state regulations.

The Wells County Council has seven members, with three elected on an at-large basis and four representing specific districts. According to the website www.indianalocalredistricting.com, Wells County has a 30 percent variance from the number of people in one district to the number of people in another district.

The state standard is 10 percent.
