The process of adjusting the boundaries of the 12 Hopkinsville City Council wards is nearly complete, with the new map to soon be presented to Council members for a vote.
Community and Development Services Technical Services Coordinator David Carroll says a lot of work has been done between him and Christian County Clerk Mike Kem and the final touches are being made.
Carroll says City Council can approve the new map as presented or decide to look at more changes.
The largest shifts in population have been in the south side of Hopkinsville, according to Carroll, who says that includes wards 7, 8 and 9. Carroll says annexation also played a part in causing shifts in boundaries. Reapportionment is done every 10 years, using census data to make each ward as equal in population as possible.
