Milam County Redistricting!
Milam County Redistricting is almost complete and in what is looking like a record time compared to those counties around us. Kudos to our County Judge and Commissioners for their hard work and dedication to getting this done in a timely and transparent manner. If you haven’t seen the redistricting maps then head on over to the county website and take a look (www.milamcounty.net). By the way, the county website is up and has received very nice reviews from those who have used it.
The redistricting meetings were well received and all those in attendance were generally happy with the outcome of the redistricting maps. Many were very thankful for the actual opportunity to have an open and public forum to review the maps and question the members of the commissioners’ court about their reasoning for making the changes.
By getting the preliminary maps out on the county website, Milam County citizens were able to view the maps and give their feedback to the commissioners and Judge Barkemeyer thereby allowing changes to be made that meet the needs of Milam County Voters. Problems addressed, concerns tackled and suggestions acted on; all concepts of working with the public that is allowing our County Government to act swifter, work harder, and become more efficient.
Thanks for a job well done!!
