Custer County redefines district lines
Custer County Board of Supervisor District lines have been reconstructed. State law says that each district within a county must be organized so that the population base is as even as possible. Although the population in Custer County decreased from 11,793 to 10,939 in the last census, Broken Bow’s population gain from 3515 to 3559 helped move the supervisors' district lines off balance. The Board of Supervisors passed resolution 50-2011 Tuesday morning establishing the new voting districts. For more on the redistricting process see this week’s Custer County Chief.
