I also must not have been home when they were going around contacting people about this change.

I assumed they don't want the town to have five angry Covered Bridge town council members.
But regardless of their motivation, I think it is a better policy.

I have not even been able to find a map of the districts yet, let alone the meeting minutes for this meeting

Citizens have a responsibility to go to city/town/county council meetings. The few [Sellersburg town council meetings] that I have been to usually have less than 10 people in attendance, and usually the others there are to petition for something. I'm usually the only one there just to witness the meeting.
This is why our country is in the mess it is in. We expect our leaders to tell us when they are going to screw us? (not that I think this was a "screw", I'm in favor of this change)
If you want to keep government in check - you HAVE to go to the public meetings! That's why they have them!
