When will the city complete the redistricting of the three wards based on 2010 census numbers?? Qualifying fees have been set but anyone interested in running for any of these three seats cannot be sure of what area they are living and voting in if the redistricting isn't finished soon.

The City of Powder Springs is currently working through the redistricting process. With the assistance of Linda Meggers, former Director of the Reapportionment Services Unit of the Georgia Legislature, a proposed map has been drawn and will be available for public view within the next day or so at City Hall, via the City's website (www.cityofpowdersprings.org), and at next Tuesday's State of the City/Town Hall meeting. The Mayor and City Council will consider a resolution, formally adopting the new plan, at their meeting on Monday, February 18, 2013 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers located at 4488 Pineview Drive in Powder Springs. If adopted, the plan will then be taken to the Georgia Legislature for consideration as Local Legislation. Assuming passage by the Legislature, the redistricing plan will then be sent to the Federal Department of Justice for their approval. The updated ward maps will be ready in plenty of time for qualifying for the three ward seats in late August 2013.

The proposed City ward redistricting maps are now available for public view on the City's website, www.cityofpowdersprings.org. Once on the homepage, look under Powder Springs News, and then click on "Proposed City Council Districts". PDF files are available for viewing of each proposed Ward map, the proposed map for the entire City, as well as the current map. The City is having the current and proposed new maps printed, laminated and mounted on a board. Once we receive these (expected to have them no later than Thursday, February 7, 2013), they will be posted for public view at two locations: Powder Springs City Hall, 4488 Marietta St., Powder Springs, GA; and, Powder Springs Public Library, 4181 Atlanta St., Powder Springs, GA. Again, there will be a brief presentation regarding the proposed redistricting during the State of The City/Town Hall meeting this coming Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at 7 p.m. at the "Coach" George E. Ford Center Reception Hall, located directly behind the Powder Springs Library at 4181 Atlanta St., Powder Springs, GA. Additionally, current and proposed Ward maps will be available for public view.

I would like for Mayor Vaughn discuss the recent raises council voted for themselves. Why was it justified? Would she be open to term limits of three terms for city officials? What areas of city operations have been cut to help balance our bugdet?

I would like to know why the subdivision where the Mayor resides, "Country Walk" located off Shipp Road has Powder Springs Police officers in uniform, in Powder Springs patrol cars doing private "security" for her subdivision.
