There was no decision about when to redraw Columbia’s ward boundaries or when to appoint a committee during Monday night’s City Council meeting.

The council held a lengthy and at times heated discussion about whether to appoint a Ward Reapportionment Committee right away or wait until after it receives data from the 2020 U.S. Census, which could be as late as the end of September.
