Even before final census figures are known, Rock Island County has begun working on how to re-draw county board member districts. This week, the county board's Governance, Health, and Administration Committee held its first meeting on re-apportionment.
Board Chair Richard Brunk says the committee looked at state laws and recent census estimates, and talked about the process it'll use.
"I'm very confident that there will be a reduction in the number of county board members through this process. The only question is exactly what that number will be."
