BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Common Council members on Thursday outlined the council's Language and Disability Action plan.
City residents can now request language interpreters and translators for common council meetings, document translation services for all communication made by the common council, and they can also request a transcript, translating any common council meeting.
Residents can make either of these requests by visiting the city's website.
"We are committed to constantly improving upon the relationship with the community and will continue to expand upon and adjust this plan as necessary,” said Buffalo Common Council Member David Rivera. “Being able to communicate and interact with all residents in our district means we now have the privilege to truly be able to represent each of our district residents."
The city is able to do this thanks to a partnership with Deaf Access Services, International Institute of Buffalo and People Inc.
