Ord 23-59 11/16/2023 10:28 PMJames Wilkinson   These questions were sent to HREEO last week. Ms. Commers responded very quickly, which is greatly appreciated, but without answering the substance of the issue.
Ord 23-59 11/16/2023 10:25 PMJames Wilkinson   I generally approve of the changes set out in Ord 23-59. I am confused why there is a switch from "person with a disability" to "person with disabilities" part way into the proposal. Surely the City does not intend to protect only people with more than one disability; this wording may cause confusion. In limited parts (judging the reasonableness of requested accommodation in public accommodations, for example) , it makes sense to address "persons with disabilities", but not in employment, housing, and other individual reasonable accommodation sections. In these sections, a person with one eye has legal equal protection as a person who is deaf, blind and unable to speak. Right? Please fix before p***age. 651 431 1477 Back to my nit-picking ways and appreciate your efforts to improve St Paul for all. Perhaps something has escaped my attention as to why the single/plural switch makes sense. If so, I apologize. Jay 651 431 1477 (former HREEO Commissioner)
Ord 23-61 11/9/2023 9:23 PMShevek McKee For Thank you for strengthening the skyway code.
