WF City Council Meeting Turns Into Redistricting Talks

Wichita Falls City Councilors met this morning to discuss a handful of worthy agenda items before the meeting switched into redistricting concerns.

City leaders met around 8:30 AM, where they voted on an ordinance to replace vehicles for both police and water source divisions. This was part of the city's fuel conservation program, aimed at getting more fuel-efficient cars for city use. The council also voted on an ordinance to remove a requirement for a city ambulance inspection, which mirrors a state inspection, while beginning a new required franchise fee with the submission of proof the ambulances have had required state inspection.

Council districts and voting precincts were next on the list as the meeting moved into redistricting matters. City leaders decided to schedule a date to meet via internet with the attorney linked to the city's redistricting matters.

Judge Woody Gossom told Newschannel 6 the meeting is set for Thursday, August 11th at 6 PM. That will be a posted open meeting with members of the Wichita County Commissioners Court.
