Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – The Hays County Commissioners Court has scheduled three public hearings to discuss redistricting and invites the public to attend or to watch the hearings live on the Internet.
In preparation for the meetings, an advisory committee appointed by the Court has posted several proposed new precinct maps that the Court will review and use as starting points for discussion about finalizing precinct lines. View the maps at ftp://ftp.co.hays.tx.us/gis/redistricting/. New versions of some of the maps were posted July 12 to reflect finalized Congressional district lines.
The advisory committee includes Hays County Commissioner Debbie Ingalsbe (D-Precinct 1), Hays County Commissioner Will Conley (R-Precinct 3), City of Buda Mayor Pro-Tem Sandra Tenorio (D-Place 3) and Bud Wymore, chair of the Hays County Republican Party. The County’s legal advisor for redistricting is Rolando L. Rios & Associates, which has vetted the posted maps as meeting legal guidelines.
Meetings are scheduled for Monday, July 25, at 6 p.m.; Tuesday, August 9 at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday, August 16, at 1:30 p.m. All meetings will be held in the third-floor Commissioners Courtroom at the Hays County Courthouse, 111 E. San Antonio Street, San Marcos. To watch the proceedings go to www.co.hays.tx.us/commcourtlive.
