Human Rights Commission asks BoS to Rescind Courthouse Ordinance
It looks like the Humboldt County Human Rights Commission has asked the Board of Supervisors to rescind the emergency health and safety ordinance it passed to move occupiers off the courthouse grounds.
Here is the start of a letter from Janelle Egger to the Commissioners. Egger has taken the County to court over the ordinance.
Dear Commissioners,I wish to thank you for your action this evening and especially for your patience. You have many things on your plate and your willingness to devote time to this is truly appreciated.
Just to let you know I posted this on facebook tonight–
This evening the Humboldt Human Rights Commission voted unanimously in favor of a motion asking the Board of Supervisors to rescind/repeal the urgency ordinance and extend an offer to work with them to address some issues. In an April 27, 2012 letter to the Board of Supervisors the Commission stated the issues of concern were communication, education, accommodation and enforcement and that “many of the issues at play could be resolved with improvements in the first three of those areas so that enforcement would then be rare but appropriate.”
