After negotiations between the city and the ACLU over redistricting the city failed, the Yakima City Council will meet Tuesday to discuss the way City Council elections are conducted.

At the heart of the issue is concern over how the city's districts are divided. The city proposed moving to a five-district system while the ACLU wanted a seven-district system.

The meeting on the election procedure will start at 10:15 Tuesday morning at City Hall.

The redistricting is a result of a lawsuit brought by the ACLU on behalf of two Yakima residents who felt that the current system did not adequately reflect the city's Hispanic population. After the judge ruled against the city, there was an opportunity for a negotiated change to the districts. Since that has not happened, a judgment in the case is expected sometime in November.
