Councils oks new Veterans, Disability and Human Services Commission

The Surprise City Council moved to approve the formation of a volunteer Veterans, Disability and Human Services Commission at Tuesday’s regular council meeting.
The 11-member advisory commission will assist in the development of city programming related to these three focus areas.
The city will recruit for a full-time staff member within the Human Service and Community Vitality (HSCV) Department to serve as a staff liaison to the commission and support other duties within HSCV.
The commission will receive $50,000 for the initial-year establishment to support a proposed community needs assessment and strategic planning process. $10,000 in annual funding was proposed for yet to be determined veteran and human service programs and to expand the city’s adaptive service offerings to support people with special needs.
The former seven-member Disability Advisory Commission (DAC) will initially transition to the new larger commission, with four seats to be filled by veterans, their family members or someone representing a veteran service organization. As the terms for the current DAC members expire, new commissioners will be sought.
The City Clerk will advertise the application process for those seeking to serve on the new commission through the city’s website. The goal is to have the new commission assembled to begin meeting in February 2019. Meeting dates and times will also be posted at www.surpriseaz.gov.
