PERTH AMBOY— The City of Perth Amboy and Alianza (Alliance), a program of the New Jersey Institute for Disabilities are announcing a call to service for a commission seeking volunteers to serve and discuss the needs of those with disabilities.
“Our goal here is to serve all of our community members—respond to their needs and to improve their life quality here in Perth Amboy. I’m looking forward to this initiative where we reach out and address ADA compliance, expansion of programs, recreational activities and other important topics,” said Mayor Wilda Diaz.
“We’ve partnered with the city’s Office of Recreation and initiated recreation programming for special needs with summer activities like kayaking and tennis and we want to continue to build our outreach with the City of Perth Amboy through this Persons with Disabilities Commission. Alianza is proud to partner with Mayor Wilda Diaz to establish the Sin Barreras (Without Barriers) Commission, which will help to build a community of inclusion for all people, said Venus Majeski, director of Community Relations.
Applications are available at Perth Amboy City Hall, the Alianza Office located in the Raritan Bay YMCA on 357 New Brunswick Avenue and on the city’s website. Applicants must be a city resident, must have knowledge or experience with a person(s) with a disability and must submit their applications by Monday, Nov. 21, 2011.
