The Iberville Pairsh Council will hold a committee meeting on reapportionment at 6 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) at the Courthouse to discuss a final plan for its 13 districts.

The council has set a final public hearing on a new redistricting plan for 6 p.m. Monday (May 10), followed by a special meeting to consider adopting the plan.

The Parish Council is trying to redraw the districts using 2010 U. S. Census data and get U. S. Justice Department approval of the plan in time for the fall elections.
