Supervisors from Solebury Township are in the process of creating a commission to deal with discrimination complaints. Staff writers at the Bucks County Herald wrote about the recent developments.
The Township will be creating a Human Relations Commission to deal with aforementioned complaints. The board of supervisors voted unanimously to create the panel.
Board members plan on having the commission being used as a mediator for cases where discrimination is involved. If it cannot resolve the issue, the complaint will make its way to Common Pleas Court.
“I have spoken with members of the community about volunteering to serve on an HRC and am convinced that we can find the minimum three and hopefully five members to fill the slots,” said Chair Mark Baum Baicker.
The main goal of the upcoming commission will be to take on any cases in their area where discrimination of any kind is involved. This includes cases where someone’s age, race, sex, or disability has been made an issue.
