|The Commission on Inclusion and Adaptive Living consists of seven citizens serving three-year terms. The commission's goals are to expand educational opportunities; improve access to housing, buildings, and transportation; have greater participation in recreational, social, and cultural activities; encourage greater opportunity for employment; and expand and strengthen rehabilitative programs and facilities. There are currently seven seats available, however we are asking Council to seat six seats at this time due to limited applications. Staff is asking Russell Randall to continue to serve until his seat can be filled when additional applications are received. The commission has had to cancel several meetings due to lack of quorum. It is important to fill vacancies on Boards and Commissions quickly so as to allow the Commission to continue meeting on a regular basis.
There are six applications on file for consideration by the Council, they are as follows:
- Monica Attridge (current commissioner)
- Alexander Davenport (new applicant)
- James Hasapis (new applicant)
- James Martinez (current commissioner)
- Sakenya McDonald (new applicant)
- Andrea Thomas (new applicant)
In an effort to reduce exposure to personal information the applicant roster and applications will be submitted to the City Council separately.
COUNCIL APPOINTMENT ASSIGNMENTS: Mayor Deasy, Councilmember Salas, Councilmember McCarthy, Vice Mayor Daggett, Councilmember Aslan, and Councilmember Shimoni
