Oneida County Legislature To Redraw District Lines
Utica, NY (WIBX) - The Oneida County Legislature is consolidating once again.
Voters recently chose to reduce the legislature’s size from 29 to 23, prompting Chairman of the Board, Gerald Fiorini, to redraw the county district lines.
“Obviously, they’ll incorporate their lines with another legislator near that district,” Fiorini said. “Right now, we’re looking at two from Utica, two from Rome and two from the towns depending on where these legislators plan on retiring.”
So far only David Wood, representing Rome, has publicly mentioned retiring.
Fiorini says once the county legislature finishes working on the budget, he will create a committee to begin redistricting.
The process should be completed by early next year.
