Final Code of Ordinance, Discrimination Against Individuals with Disabilities
The City of Corpus Christi Committee for Persons with Disabilities, a City advisory board, recommended to City Council a non-discrimination ordinance which would amend the Code of Ordinances, City of Corpus Christi, Chapter 24, Human Relations, by adding Article V, Discrimination Against Individuals with Disabilities, establishing procedure and implementation; providing publication; providing for severance; and providing for penalties. The committee held a series of public meetings on the proposed ordinance.
The Committee for Persons with Disabilities requested City Council consideration of their proposed non-discrimination ordinance to ensure persons with disabilities have accessibility to facilities, services, activities, and programs by the City and its contractors.
