PUBLIC NOTICE

CITY OF LA FERIA FAIR HOUSING STATEMENT The City of La Feria, Texas hereby declares its support of fair housing practices. It is hereby declared to be the policy of the City to bring about, through fair, orderly and lawful procedures, the opportunity of each person to obtain housing without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, physical or mental handicap, marital status, parenthood, or age. It is further declared that such a policy is established upon a recognition of the inalienable rights of each individual to obtain housing and further, that denial of such rights is detrimental to the health, safety, and welfare of the inhabitants of the city and constitutes an unjust denial or deprivation of such inalienable rights which is within the power and the proper responsibility of government to prevent. The City of La Feria has a Fair Housing Policy that may be examined and copied by interested groups or individuals at the La Feria City Hall between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Ms. Olga Oberwetter has been designated as the Fair Housing Officer for the City of La Feria. The City Commission of the City of La Feria proclaims the month of April “Fair Housing Month.” A copy of the official proclamation may be obtained at the City Hall on April 8 or thereafter during the hours shown above.
