Battle Creek Commissioners give initial approval to new ward map

Lead in text: 
A final vote on the new map could be held March 19th.
In a decision that one member said felt like government operating in secret, the Battle Creek City Commission gave its initial approval to updated boundaries of the city's five political wards. The map voted on Tuesday didn't include two minor changes proposed by Commissioner Andy Helmboldt meant to make wards better align with neighborhood boundaries.
