The subcommittee,chaired by Carolyn McDaniel, established at the December 2020 meeting of the Greenfield Human Rights Commission (HRC) makes the following recommendations regarding chapter 136 of the city code:

The subcommittee recommends that the main body of the code remain as-is, and that efforts be made to produce bylaws and process documents identified therein. Specific documents to be produced are:
Rules of procedure, as named in code section 136-4 B
These rules of procedure should be drafted to satisfy the requirements outlined in 136-6 G-H
Expanded narrative descriptions of, and standard operating procedures for achieving each core function of the HRC, as identified in 136-5 A-D
Establish a formal calendar of HRC business that includes (but is not limited to) key responsibilities outlined in code:
Annual reporting
Ongoing/annual assessment schedules

The subcommittee recognizes that this is a substantial project, and because collaboration and cooperation will be critical to success, further recommends that this process work be done in working meetings of the larger HRC body.
