The Common Council adjusted all of the city's ward boundaries at its meeting Monday night, moves made necessary by the 2010 census. Three aldermanic district boundaries, districts, 4, 5 and 6, were also adjusted.
The city is required to adjust wards in order to have similar population counts.
The adjustments, which go into effect Jan. 1, result in ward populations of 1,000 to 1,200 except in the 6th District where both wards 6 and 12 have 952 and 987 residents. City Administrator Richard Maslowski said the city anticipates population growth in those wards over the next decade.
Residents whose ward or district changed will be notified in January of their new polling locations.
