Are you passionate about your City and have a desire to give back? 

The City welcomes your active participation on the Human Rights Commission!

The Human Rights Commission fosters mutual understanding and respect among all groups and discourages discriminatory practices in our community. It formulates and carries out programs of community education and information. It receives and acts as conciliator regarding occurrences of acts of prejudice or discrimination, and secures the cooperation of various community groups.

This board meets on the second Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m.
