Wednesday, October 21, the city’s new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Commission will hold their first meeting beginning at 7:00 p.m. Due to the Governor’s Proclamation prohibiting in person meetings during Phase 2, the meeting will be held remotely via Zoom.

“At the first meeting, we will focus on orientation items for the new Commission, discuss a future meeting schedule, and get to know each other,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “We look forward to hearing new perspectives and working together to help our community become more informed and engaged.”
