Meridian's redistricting was among topics discussed at Monday's Council of Governments meeting. Meridian city council president Mary Perry warned that redrawing municipal lines may create major changes in wards.

"Two or three of us will have some pretty strong changes because of the numbers to reach racial balance that the law requires us to have," said Perry. "So we have done that and I think people need to know and let us know how they feel about where they're going to be moved."

Perry said the new ward lines will be revealed at a public meeting in January. She urged citizens to attend.
