Laurel inches closer to completing redistricting

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

The City of Laurel is one step closer to passing a plan for redistricting.

Redistricting Chairman, Trey Chinn, said everything is moving along smoothly. Chinn said Laurel has gained a few hundred residents since 2000 and district lines had to be redrawn.

Chin said Ward 2 saw an increase in residents while several other wards saw a slight decrease.

Chinn said the city's final plan will be submitted to the justice department in a few weeks.
