Clay County now has new supervisor district lines with Monday's adoption by the Clay County Board of Supervisors of the redistricting map that was developed with the help of the Golden Triangle Planning and Development District.
Most of the changes reflected on the new map were made within the city limits of West Point.
The block where Sixth Street, E. Main Street, Cottrell Street, Clay Street and East Half Mile Street connect used to belong to District 1 but is now included in District 4. This move gave District 4 410 people from District 1.
