The City is divided into six wards.
Council shall have the power by ordinance to change ward boundaries at any time, and shall, by ordinance passed within 120 days after the official report of the results of each decennial federal census, either change the ward boundaries or affirm the then existing ward boundaries, in each case so as to practically comply with the one person one vote requirement.
Council shall hold a public hearing on any ordinance that changes or affirms ward boundaries, and shall give 30 days public notice of the time and place of that hearing once in a newspaper of general circulation in the City and by posting at the same locations as required for ordinances. That ordinance shall be certified by the Clerk of Council to the Board of Elections of Portage County within10 days after its effective date.
