The Finance, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee of Cleveland City Council reviews and discusses legislation related to the Finance and Law Departments and the Office of Equal Opportunity and policies that affect the city’s financial stability and operations. It reviews much of the legislation that goes through council, typically as a final stop in the committee stage to decide whether to send legislation to the full council for a future vote on passage or another public reading. Legislation reviewed by this committee often pertains to finances, taxation, the standardization of salaries and wages, union agreements, civil service, pensions and sale, lease or purchase of real estate, changes to the city’s codified ordinances and charter amendments, items related to courts, items relating to licenses and those imposing fines, penalties, forfeitures or imprisonment, printing and advertising, monitoring compliance with community benefit agreements, policies and procedures, and the city’s efforts on diversity, equity and inclusion.
