The committee will also help further the goals of the city’s strategic plan and work to improve access to local government for all residents including: Latinos, Refugees, Immigrants, African Americans, Senior Citizens, Physically and Mentally Disabled, LGBTQ+, and the many religious faiths in the community.
The committee will meet twice a month. One meeting will be held at City Hall and will be considered the business meeting of the month, which will take place at a regularly scheduled date and time that is convenient for the members. Additional meetings may be held at the discretion of the committee.
The committee will consist of no less than five, and no more than nine, volunteers who reflect the diversity of of Twin Falls and provide representation from a broad spectrum of the community, including but not limited to diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, and other ideologies.
