Here's an issue that pops up from time to time in Naperville: Should the City Council, instead of consisting entirely of at-large members, have designated district representatives?
There are many facets to the discussion. You could have district representatives, and still have some at-large members. District council members would be more directly responsible for responding to concerns of their constituents. At-large members could respond to any citizen.
Other points to consider if Naperville were to adopt districts: What would the boundaries be? How many districts should there be? Should the number of members on the council be increased, so each district council member would serve fewer people, and thus be able to be more responsive?
What do you think? Should Naperville revisit the question of council districts, and, if so, what form should it take?
