Cheltenham passed on Wednesday night an ordinance creating a human relations commission, a vehicle to combat discrimination and promote equality before the law.
Now the township is seeking residents interested in serving on the commission. The ordinance is available here. There are nine positions which will ultimately have three-year staggered terms. Only registered voters are eligible. The application deadline is 4:30 p.m. on March 30, 2012.
Resumes will be accepted in writing by post, hand-delivery or email to the Cheltenham Township Manager, 8230 Old York Road, Elkins Park, PA 19027, or email@example.com. For more information, contact the Cheltenham Township Public Information Office at 215-887-6200, ext. 230.
