City of Gainesville Considering Ombuds

Commissioners for the city in northern Florida (which is home to the University of Florida) are looking into creating an Ombuds program. A proposal to create a new city department came before the the Gainesville City Commission this week. The backup material do not specify who the Ombuds would serve or how much it would cost. 

Morgan Spicer, the city's interim policy oversight administrator, presented the commission with a detailed report on the proposal and referenced two other municipalities with Ombuds: the Town of Chapel Hill and the City of Seattle. (Gainesville Sun.)
