The City Manager’s Office oversees the performance of the five departments of the City.
What is redistricting?
Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. Local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach, including to non-English-speaking communities. In Dinuba, the City Council is responsible for drawing council districts. Per the City Charter, the Dinuba City Council will form a Citizens Advisory Committee to oversee the redistricting of boundaries based on 2020 Census data. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is released around March 31, 2021. For the City of Dinuba, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17 2022.
Why does redistricting matter to me?
Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing a councilmember.
The City Council will seek input in selecting the next district map for our City Council. You have an opportunity to share with the City Council how you think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community.
You can contact City Clerk, Linda Barkley to find out more about how the process works.
