Commissioners to review County Council districts

The Wells County Commissioners will review four plans Monday to possibly change the districts for the Wells County Council, after research from DePauw University made the case that the districts for Wells County Council members are out of compliance with state regulations.

As illustrated below, the Wells County Council now 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.
