On Tuesday, Leavenworth County commissioners gave the OK to publish a tentative map of five commission districts on the county’s website. But a slightly different map has been posted on the website.

And more changes could be in store.

The map shows how Leavenworth County Commission district boundaries may be redrawn if voters approve the expansion of the commission.

In November, voters in the county will determine if the commission should be expanded from three members to five.

A group called Give Me Five successfully collected the necessary signatures to have a question regarding the expansion of the County Commission placed on the ballot for the general election.

During a commission meeting Tuesday, commissioners were presented a proposed map of five commission districts. Commissioners reached a consensus to have the map posted on the county website.

A different version of the map appears on the website with a message suggesting the map “will likely change several times before the election.”

Jeff Culbertson, the director of the county’s Geographic Information Systems Department, said the updated version makes the populations of the individual districts a little more equal.

Culbertson, who is a candidate for the County Commission, said the maps are drawn up by his department, but he has not been working on them.

Another GIS staff member, Tyler Wehr, has been working on the maps.
