January 13, 2022
Holt County Supervisors approved Resolution 2021-33, redistricting of the seven supervisor districts, using an equal population, based on the 2020 U.S. Census, during its Dec. 30 meeting, on a 5-1 vote.
District seven supervisor, Don Butterfield, cast the dissenting vote. District four supervisor, Scott Keyes, was absent.
According to Census results, the population count totals 10,127, which would put 1,447 residents in each district.
