SUMMARY:

 

Pursuant to the authority granted in § 163.01, Florida Statutes, Escambia County, Florida, and the City of Pensacola previously entered into an Interlocal Agreement creating the Escambia-Pensacola Human Relations Commission to serve both the incorporated and unincorporated area of Escambia County, including the City of Pensacola.  The last Interlocal Agreement approved was in 2005.

 

It was determined that it was in the best interest of the citizens of Pensacola and Escambia County to terminate the Interlocal Agreement that has been in effect and reestablish the Human Relations Commission for the purpose of continuing to provide the community with local assistance to review and resolve employment and fair housing discrimination complaints and improve community relations within Pensacola and Escambia County.

 

On March 7, 2019, the Escambia Board of County Commissioners passed an Ordinance reestablishing the Human Relations Commission.

 

This action seeks Council approval for an Interlocal Agreement pertaining to the Escambia - Pensacola Human Relations Commission.
