For many, many decades, the city of Vandalia has used two major streets in the city to create the boundaries for its four aldermanic wards. But, over the years, changes in the city’s makeup has resulted in discrepancies in the size of the wards.
Therefore, Mayor Rick Gottman said, the city needs to create new boundaries.
The council voted on Monday to authorize city officials to begin the redistricting process.
“We have not done that in a number of years,” Gottman said.
