City of Brownsville to vote on creating all-inclusive coordinator position
According to city commissioner Jessica Tetreau, Brownsville receives many calls asking for officials to increase accessibility throughout the area.
She, along with her colleague Cesar de Leon, are asking the commission to vote on creating an all-inclusive coordinator position.
The job would oversee all activities, awareness and other accommodations for the special needs community.
"The special needs community should be represented and these families have different needs than what ours are. So, I just want the city to cater more and make these children and community members know that Brownsville is an all-inclusive city," Tetreau said.
The main mission for this position would be creating more opportunities for the special needs community to get involved.
The few parents CBS 4 spoke to are hope this agenda item gets passed.
It's unclear how much the position will pay or how it will be covered, but city commissioners will discuss the details at their next meeting, if they decide to approve it.
