“The city of Santa Maria will host the second public hearing in its process of creating a by-district City Council election system Thursday, and council members still have a lot of decisions left to make, so public input will be important.
“We are inviting the public to participate in the process, and the public is encouraged to draw and submit proposed district maps,” said Mark van de Kamp, city spokesman.
The public can bring their map suggestions to Thursday’s public hearing, which will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building, 313 West Tunnell St.
Map suggestions also can be submitted to Chief Deputy City Clerk Rhonda M. Garietz at City Hall.”
