ICRC meetings go virtual

Wednesday, August 4, 2021 by Tai Moses

In their effort to collect community feedback about the redistricting of the 10 Austin City Council boundaries, members of the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission have to hold public forums in every City Council district. But the dramatic spike in Covid-19 cases has the commissioners swapping some of their in-person meetings with virtual meetings. Commissioner Dr. Sterling Lands explained, “One of the biggest challenges this commission has faced in getting the word out to the public that these forums are happening has been Covid. People are afraid to congregate, so we are hosting some public forums online via Zoom.” Find the revised schedule for the remaining forums here.
