The City of Prescott Mayor’s Commission on Veterans Initiatives met Monday for the first time with a mission of identifying and promoting collaboration between Veteran programs, partners and opportunities that enhance our Military and Veteran community members’ quality of life and make Prescott and Yavapai County the "Community of Choice" for ALL Veterans.
After having Pat Kuykendall take the Oath of Office, City Attorney Jon Paladini reviewed the Open Meeting Law with the committee members.
The Commission discussed the Commission’s objectives, which include coordinating and advancing the needs and activities of the Veteran community within the City of Prescott departments.
Another objective is to advise and provide key talking points for the Mayor and City Council members to highlight when speaking publicly and at Council meetings.
The Commission hopes to establish the City of Prescott as the most "veteran-friendly" city in the state. By August 2018, the Commission hopes to present a Prescott Veteran’s Community and Impact Report.
In the meantime, Prescott is committed to supporting deployed city employees and their families during their service to the Country.
