Commissioners Court to Discuss Redistricting

Belton, TX – On Tuesday, October 5, at 11:00 a.m. the Bell County Commissioners Court will meet for a special workshop to discuss redistricting. Members of the public are invited to hear the briefing and offer public comment.

In May, Bell County entered into an interlocal agreement with the City of Killeen, the City of Temple, and the Temple Independent School District to coordinate and collaborate on redistricting efforts. The group contracted with Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP to provide guidance on the process. Gunnar Seaquist, a partner with the firm, will be attending Tuesday’s meeting to present findings related to the county’s precinct lines, based on the most recent census data.

Members of the public may sign-up to comment prior to Tuesday’s meeting in the courtroom of the Bell County Courthouse (101 E Central Ave, Belton). Those wishing to comment remotely must register by emailing County Clerk Shelley Coston by no later than 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday. For anyone wishing to watch the meeting without commenting, the proceedings will be livestreamed at bellcountytx.com/ccvideo
