Fiscal court approves new redistricting plan

The Russell County Fiscal Court approved its new redistricting plan at yesterday’s special-called meeting.

A 3-person redistricting committee made up of Scott Pierce, Ruth Hill, and Rick Holt were selected to create the new maps, and the committee worked with the Lake Cumberland Area Development District.

There weren’t many significant changes made in the magisterial districts.

District 2, represented by Mickey Garner, and District 4, represented by Steve Richardson, saw expansions to their boundaries.

District 2 gained both sides of Snow Road and a small portion of Airport Road, and District 4 gained voters on Old Columbia Road.

District 3, represented by Zach Wilson, has the most voters at 3,773, while District 2 has the fewest at 3,449.
