MASON CITY, IA – The Human Rights Commission in Mason City says they will continue to provide services to River City residents.

The announcement was made Thursday.

According to the release, the group recently signed a contract with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that will allow them to receive around $35,000 through 2014 for investigating employment discrimination complaints.

Those funds, along with $15,000 from the city will allow them to keep the current full-time Administrative-Assistant.

The commission also says the funds will help them keep investigating cases. For each one completed the EEOC will pay them.

The report was requested by Mason City Mayor Eric Bookmeyer and the City Council.
