HRC seeks new member

 By Judy Dirks, HRC Chair
The Northfield Human Rights Commission is accepting applications for one vacancy on its commission.

Interested persons are invited to pick up an application at the Northfield City Hall, 801 Washington Street. Applicants will be invited to attend a regular Human Rights Commission meeting to meet current members and ask questions.

Members are appointed by the mayor of Northfield with the recommendation of the Human Rights Commission. Efforts are made to draw from a broad cross-section of the community, and appointments represent both sexes, various economic levels, including welfare recipients, members of the business and professional community, renters and homeowners, racial and ethnic minorities, various religious groups, and a wide age span, including senior citizens and students. 

Members of the commission are appointed for three-year terms, unless the appointee will be filling a vacancy occurring before a term is up. The current vacancy is for a full term. 

For questions, please call Judy Dirks, chair, at 645-4209.
