Explanation

This ordinance effectuates the creation of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (“ODI”) to replace the Equal Business Opportunity Commission Office (“EBOCO”) as the City entity responsible for the administration and enforcement of Title 39 and the policies, rules and regulations issued thereunder. As a result of this reorganization, there is a need to consolidate some existing Title 39 provisions and eliminate other provisions that are redundant or obsolete. To that end, this ordinance repeals all the existing twenty-eight chapters in Title 39 and replaces those chapters with seven new chapters that establish the functions and duties of the ODI.
