Sturgis municipal officials have made two minor changes in order to more equally balance populations in its four city precincts.
Prior to action the city took last week, the difference between the most and least populated precincts was about 400 people. The discrepancy was between Sturgis’ first and second precincts.
Commissioners agreed to redistrict two blocks from Precinct 1 to Precinct 4, and four blocks from Precinct 1 to Precinct 2.
The move means the difference between the most and least populated precincts in the city is 70 people.
