Making sure residents from all parts of Danville are represented by elected city officials is the main reason James Hunn gives for seeking a change in the form of our city government: " but most of all, we would like to have district representation."
If that is the case, then circulating a petition to get Danville's government changed from the city manager form to the mayor-council form is an exercise in futility. Members of a city commission or council have the responsibility and authority to divide the city into wards.
Kentucky state law (KRS 83A.100) says in part, "The legislative body of a city may by ordinance divide the city into the same number of wards as the number of legislative body members. Wards shall be as nearly equal in population as practicable and their boundaries shall be fixed by the ordinance."
