MONTICELLO – Legislators invite the public to join them on August 11 to share comments on the redistricting process now under way for Sullivan County.

The meeting will begin at 11 a.m. in the Hearing Room of the Government Center, 100 North Street, Monticello, with a presentation by County Manager Joshua Potosek and Real Property Tax Services Director Christopher Knapp. They will explain how redistricting works and what data-gathering is involved.

Legislators will then discuss the three proposed redistricting maps developed by independent consultant Main Street Communications. They will also take public comment.

A decision on which map to choose will not be made at the hearing but may occur as early as the August 18 meeting of the full Legislature. Legislators have to decide on the redrawn legislative district boundaries no later than the end of the year.
