MMC Chapter 2.48 of Ordinance 1444 was passed by City Council on December 14, 2020, which established a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commission. This commission provides information, education, and communication that facilitates understanding of diversity and celebrates and respects individual differences. The commission will make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council regarding diversity opportunities to promote programs and provide guidance to assure an accessible, safe, welcoming and inclusive government and community. The commission will also recommend effective strategies for public engagement, removing barriers, and increasing access to city services for our city’s diverse population, as well as support, challenge, and guide government and the community to eliminate and prevent all forms of discrimination and racism.

It will meet quarterly at a minimum, and advise the City Council, Mayor and staff on related issues. The Commission consists of seven (7) members to be appointed by the Mayor, subject to confirmation by the city council according to the confirmation process established by council resolution, from residents of the city.
