Mission

The Human Relations Commission is tasked with a two-fold mission:

First, the commission aims to foster, through community effort or otherwise, goodwill, cooperation and conciliation among the groups and elements of the inhabitants of the community.

Second, the commission is tasked with making recommendations to the governing body for the development of policies and procedures in general and for programs of formal and informal education that will aid in eliminating all types of discrimination based on race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, affectional or sexual orientation, familial status, disability, nationality, sex, or religion.

The commission is in its infancy, having sat vacant for many years.
