Resolution No. 129—2014-15 – Legislative/Audit & Human Resources Committee. Urge the state legislature to, when redistricting, consider a non-partisan board utilizing a method to establish voting districts similar to the process used in Iowa.
Resolution No. 129—2014-15 was previously distributed with your March 24, 2015, board packet; please bring your copy to the meeting.
At the March 24, 2015 meeting, Supervisor Thyssen moved, seconded by Supervisor Iverson, for adoption. Subsequently, discussion took place regarding a similar resolution adopted Feb. 25, 2014, Resolution No. 155—2013-14. Corporation Counsel Guidote reported that if Resolution No. 129—2014-15 were defeated at the March 24, 2015 meeting, confusion could occur with Board intent regarding redistricting. His recommendation was that it might be preferable for the County Board to withdraw Resolution No. 129—2014-15. After further debate, Supervisor Thomas moved, seconded by Supervisor Rahmlow, to refer Resolution No. 129—2014-15 back to committee. Motion carried 20 aye, 14 nay, 2 absent. At the April 21, 2015 meeting, Supervisor Thyssen requested Resolution No. 129—2014-15 be held in committee. No objection; so ordered.
