Toombs to Meet With State Reapportionment Office
Thursday, 07 July 2011

July 7--  Toombs County officials are meeting Monday with the state reapportionment office in Atlanta.

County manager Doug Eaves says the 2010 census shows that Commission Districts 1 and 2 are below the target population of 6,805 citizens while Districts 3 and 4 are over the target.  

At the Monday meeting, officials hope they can redraw the district lines to add nearly 800 citizens to Commissioner Roy Lee Williams District 1 and about 200 to Commissioner Louie Powell's District 2.  

Once the new lines are drawn up and approved by the commission, the new districts must be okayed by the U.S. Department of Justice and enacted by the Georgia General Assembly.
