Apparently everyone is happy with the finalized maps showing the new city council wards. That’s because, according to Paragould Mayor Josh Agee, there were no comments about the maps as displayed in the city hall foyer for the last month.

The city council approved adoption of the maps at its Dec. 13 meeting. As previously reported, the maps have been drawn so as to have as close to the same number of people in each ward as possible, so that two incumbents would not have to run against each other in the next election, and so as to follow natural lines of demarcation (roads, etc.) wherever possible.
