COLUMBUS CITY COUNCIL; Panel may be asked to draw council districts

Jun 28, 2017 - The Columbus Dispatch (Ohio)

A citizen commission may be appointed by the Columbus City Council and the mayor to draw district boundaries if voters adopt a plan to expand the council and divide the city into nine wards.

Johnson called it a starting place for the council. "There might be things they like or don't like," he said.
