Background

Supporters of the commission say it will have the power to investigate claims of discrimination and enforce any anti-discrimination ordinances passed by the city council. [1] The proposed budget calls for an initial cost of $300,000 for the first year, and $200,000 for each year afterwards. There people would be employed and the commission would consist of seven members.

Council will be presented with a report on February 6, 2012.
