The Adair County Commission and the Adair County Clerk’s Office will be hosting a public hearing on Monday, December 4, 2023, from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at the Adair County Annex, 300 N. Franklin Street in Kirksville. The topic to be discussed is realigning Adair County Commission District boundaries for 1st and 2nd District Commissioners per Mo. Revised Statute 49.010. . .

Information provided by the 2020 census shows that the County’s population is no longer represented equally regarding current areas associated with County Commission District 1 and County Commission District 2. To provide a more equal representation, the County Commission and the County Clerk’s Office have worked together to establish new boundaries for District 1 and District 2. At the hearing, maps will be provided showing the proposed changes to the districts.

Both the County Commission and members of the County Clerk’s Office will be available for questions during the hearing. Information and maps are available in the offices of the County Commission and the County Clerk located on the second floor of the Adair County Courthouse. The information is also available on the County’s website at

The final boundary changes will be approved by the County Commission. Changes will become effective January 1, 2024, and the new district boundaries will be in place for Commissioner candidate filing, February 27, 2024, through March 26, 2024.
