Laurel Council votes on redistricting next week

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Laurel's redistricting plans are a step away from going to the United States Justice Department.

Redistricting Chairman, Trey Chinn said the city's population grew by a few hundred people and because of that new lines had to be drawn.

Ward Five, Six and Seven lost people, while Ward One and Two saw an increase.

Chinn said the council put aside all differences to work for the best interest of the people.
