City to review council boundaries

The City of Spokane is looking for three people willing to review its council district boundaries and decide whether they need to be adjusted as a result of the 2010 Census.

Think that's you? You have until July 1 to decide. Here's the criteria:

You must:
Be a registered voter.
Be a resident of the city for at least two years.

You can't:
Be a lobbyist now, or any time in the past year.
Campaign for public office, be part of someone else's campaign or contribute to a campaign while on the board
Serve on the City Council or campaign for a council seat for two  years after the plan takes effect.

If the lines are redrawn, they won't matter to this year's campaign. They'll be used in the 2013 city elections.

Board members will be nominated by the mayor and approved by the council. Council President Joe Shogan and a councilmember to be named later will serve in advisory capacity on the board.

And before you ask, no there's no pay involved.
