The City Council accepted a slate of more than 20 recommendations from the Task Force on Race and Culture on December 11.
Mayor Betsy Price directed city staff to research costs of implementing the recommendations and to investigate how other large cities in Texas and across the nation handle issues of racial and cultural disparity.
If all aspects of the recommendations were to be approved and implemented, there would be a $3 million impact on the fiscal year 2020 city budget. The costs would represent .5 percent of the city’s general fund budget and would add seven full-time and 20 part-time staff positions.
Further action on implementing the recommendations is expected in 2019.
