It's been a long time coming, but the Hyattsville City Council is all but guaranteed to cast the final votes to fully implement a new redistricting scheme.
Charter amendments need two votes to pass, and the final vote is slated for tonight.
There is also a presentation from Mayor Marc Tartaro set to recognize the members of the city's Redistricting Committee for their work.
The new redistricting scheme keeps the city's five-ward, 10 council-members-and-a-Mayor structure, still the second largest city council in the state of Maryland after Baltimore. It also carves out a slight Hispanic "minority-opportunity" ward in Ward 4, with a 50 percent Hispanic population. A good description of the wards can be found here.
