The commission for people with disabilities shall have as its primary purpose to advise the mayor and the director of health and social services. It may request the department of health and social services and other appropriate agencies studies of and information regarding the needs of the individuals with disabilities in the community in relation to housing, employment, transportation, economics, health, recreation and other relevant matters, and make recommendations to the mayor and city administrators, commissions, boards and departments.
All recommendations made by the commission will be forwarded to the mayor and department of health and social services. It may request an analysis of the ongoing services provided by the community, both by public and private agencies and make appropriate recommendations on the basis of those results.
The commission for people with disabilities may review the city's proposed budget and other resource allocations which may impact upon services to people with disabilities and make appropriate recommendations.
