At the November 3, 2020 meeting, the City Council approved and created a Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee that will consist of 12-15 members to serve as a diverse reflection of our city. The Committee shall be composed of residents and/or employees of businesses located within the city limits. Local clergy are encouraged to become involved.
Members will participate in informational sessions (similar to the Citizens Police Academy) and also get a general overview of the city’s operations. Some areas of discussion will include recruiting and hiring qualified and diverse applicants in all departments and exploring outreach efforts for residents who may not be native English speakers.
The Committee will meet quarterly and report to the Council twice a year or more frequent if necessary and there is a commitment of 1 year from members.
