Tuesday, Albany City commissioners looked at two redistricting proposals and approved a timeline that will lead to the adoption of new district maps based on new census data.

The next step is to make the public aware of the maps, then decide which plan to send to the department of justice.

"The department of justice will be intimately interested in how well we did dispersing this discussion. The maps so that there can be plenty of input on the subject," said City Attorney Nathan Davis.

Nathan Davis says if you want to take a look at the maps, you should contact the city manager for a copy then share your opinions.
