As we all struggle with these challenging times, we must not lose sight of equity issues for all our constituents. We are beginning the 2021 Budget process and are looking with an equity lens towards spending our resources fairly and making our community better prepared for the future.

We hosted a Virtual Town Hall meeting to discuss the need for equity in mental health, substance abuse, food insecurity and restorative justice services on July 21st.
