An ordinance to establish new election precincts in Charles City is up for likely passage at tonight’s regular City Council meeting.
The Council will host a public hearing first before the second reading of the ordinance to make the small adjustments to voting precincts based on the City’s 2020 census. A motion is expected to waive the the third reading of the ordinance and adopt the changes, which in conjunction with new election precincts for Floyd County, must be approved by the state before three new county supervisors districts can be established.
Passage of a new ordinance for the operation of ATVs, UTVs and snowmobiles within city limits is also expected when the council meets at 6 p.m. tonight in City Hall.
Tonight’s New Hampton City Council meeting will be the final session for outgoing, longtime councilman Scott Perkins, who’s service is saluted by Mayor Bobby Schwickerath.
Perkins served on New Hampton’s City Council from July 1, 1992 through June 1, 1996; and then another decade from 2011 through the end of this year.
Also on the agenda when the City Council meets at 7 p.m. in City Hall is the third reading of the ordinance that would revise New Hampton’s voting precincts based on the 2020 census.
