The city is recognizing businesses that employ individuals with disabilities.
Wednesday, Mayor Mike Huether recognized Camille's Sidewalk Café, Hy-Vee, Lowe's and TJ Maxx as the first disability-friendly businesses.
"These businesses are to be commended for making their businesses so inclusive to these worthy, hardworking employees," Huether said. "I would encourage other businesses to utilize the talent that individuals with disabilities can bring to the workplace."
Businesses that employ individuals with disabilities are eligible to receive a "Disability-Friendly" sticker to display at the place of business. A business can be nominated to receive a sticker by contacting the Business Resource Network at 367-5260 or the Sioux Falls Human Relations Office at 367-8745. Patrons also are encouraged to frequent businesses that are disability-friendly.
"Individuals with disabilities are an important part of our business community, and businesses should be recognized for enabling those with disabilities to enjoy equal employment opportunities," Colleen Moran, Assistant City Attorney, said.
