YONKERS — Mayor Mike Spano is establishing a Yonkers Hispanic Advisory Board torecommend policies to advance Hispanic community development.
The board will consist of up to nine members who must be city residents and will serve two-year terms. Submit resumes at www.yonkersny.gov.
The mayor said about 35 percent of the city’s population is of Hispanic origin.
“It is essential that members of our Hispanic community have a platform to discuss issues of relevance and importance to that community,” Spano said.
