Subject: Identify Two Important Goals for Commission

 Evans advised that the commission needs to decide what its purpose are and what three to five goals they would like to focus on. There are 11 meetings a year, however when there is not quorum they are canceled. Lassiter Ayers asked about the vacancies because it seems like if one person cannot come, there is not quorum. Also, there is no Latino/a representation. She advised recruitment needs to be intentional ensure everyone is represented (including males and people with disabilities). Jarrett advised that she knew a couple people she could refer and asked how they should apply; Evans advised there is an application process that he can get over to us after the meeting. Kidd asked how many vacancies there are, and Evans said he thought four. He advised that there may be some current applicants and he will check wit the Mayor. Farrar advised that Kenosha is trying to create a similar committee and it would be nice to research why the committee was created. Evans talked about the two separate ordinances and our tasks as a committee, and will email the information to the commission.
