New Golden Valley Human Rights Commission Approved, Applicants Sought

After being put on hold two years ago, the Golden Valley City Council has reinstated city’s Human Rights Commission.

Two years after the Golden Valley City Council dismissed the entire Golden Valley Human Rights Commission, the group has been reestablished.

The item, presented as an ordinance amendment, was approved by the council at the March 5 meeting, including a few updates to the commission’s bylaws.

The city is now seeking applicants to serve on the Human Rights Commission, according to the Golden Valley website. The application deadline is 4 p.m. April 1, 2013.

Here are application details from the Golden Valley website:

The City of Golden Valley is recruiting applicants, representing a diverse cross-section of the City, to serve on its Human Rights Commission.

Applicants must be residents of Golden Valley (with the exception of current high school students attending schools served by the Robbinsdale or Hopkins school districts or attending any private or charter schools in Golden Valley). High school students are encouraged to apply for the two student commission appointments.

Candidates must be available to attend evening meetings on the fourth Tuesday of each month.

Candidates appointed to the Human Rights Commission initially will be randomly designated one-, two-, or three-year terms. Subsequent appointments will be for three-year terms. Applicants may designate their term preference on the Advisory Boards and Commissions Application.

For more information on applying, contact the city of Golden Valley at 763-593-8000.
