Muskego has new aldermanic districts following the Muskego Common Council's 4-3 approval of the plan last night.
But the redrawn districts leave Alderman Kert Harenda outside his 2nd Aldermanic District. He can continue to represent District 2, as is allowed by state law, until his term is up in April, 2013. Harenda could run to represent the new District 3 either next April when the aldermanic district map takes effect or in 2013. That district is now represented by Alderman Neil Borgman.
The new map also preserves, to some extent, Little Muskego Lake being represented by three aldermen. However, Alderman Dan Soltysiak will lose about three-quarters of his lake constituents. He was to lose all of them under a previous staff redistricting plan, but that plan was revised due to an outcry by some lake residents.
Those who voted in opposition to the redistricting plan pointed to the difference of 580 people in the populations of the largest and the smallest districts.
