[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Blooming Grove 12-13-2016 by Ord. No. 12-2016. Amendments noted where applicable.]
{Amended 1-25-2017 by L.L. No. 1-2017]
The Town Board shall divide the Town into six wards and fix the boundaries thereof. So far as possible the division shall be made so that each ward shall be in as compact form as practicable and the number of inhabitants in each ward, based upon the last regular federal census, shall be substantially equal. In so dividing the Town into wards, Town election districts may be divided. When the Town Board has determined, by resolution, the boundaries of the wards, the ward boundaries shall be deemed established. After the boundaries of the wards have been established by the Town Board, the Board shall cause a map of the Town showing the location of each ward and boundaries thereof to be filed in the offices of the Town Clerk, County Clerk and County Board of Elections. After the initial establishment of the ward boundaries, the Town Board shall have authority to modify those boundaries in accordance with law.
