On August 4th, 2015, the City Council created the Ad Hoc Steering Committee on Diversity. The committee consisted of 17 members and Mayor Paul Esser acted as the Chair. The Committee was tasked with the following:

  1. Provide recommendations to enhance the City's capability to locate, recruit and hire qualified candidates with diverse backgrounds
  2. Identify and Provide a better understanding of the unique needs of different individuals and communities within Sun Prairie regarding City Services

Over the next year and a half, the Committee met approximately two times per month to discuss and analyze topics related to the above. Following the dissolution of the Committee on April 1, 2017 the Mayor presented the Committee's Final Report (PDF) to the City Council. The City Council accepted the report and instructed staff to begin the implementation of its recommendations.

Since that time, the City has made significant progress. More information on that progress can be viewed by following the links:
