HAMMOND | The Hammond City Council on Monday unanimously approved boundaries for the six council districts for the next 10 years.

No changes were made to the boundaries as a result of the 2010 U.S. Census that showed the city's population had dipped slightly.

City Councilwoman Janet Venecz, D-at large, who sponsored the ordinance, called it a formality required by state law.

The ordinance sets the districts at the following populations: 13,349 people in the 1st District, 13,756 people in the 2nd District, 12,917 people in the 3rd District, 14,113 people in the 4th District, 13,096 people in the 5th District and 13,599 in the 6th District.
