La Salle mayor thinks they could follow Peru’s lead in investigating ward populations

Posted by wlpo on August 2, 2011

The neighborhoods in Peru have been changing over the years, so you would expect that to be the case in La Salle.  After learning that Peru will need to update their wards because of population shifts, La Salle Mayor Jeff Grove says it’s something his city should investigate.

Grove says they should talk with attorney their attorney Jim McPhederon to make sure everyone has equal representation on the city council.  Both La Salle and Peru have four wards, the boundaries of which haven’t been updated in at least 30 years.

La Salle County is in the process of updating their district maps, something they do following each ten year Census.
