The Charlotte city council started providing ASL interpretation during their bi-monthly meetings in September.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – American Sign Language, or ASL, interpretation is now available during Charlotte city council business meetings.
A city spokesperson, who said the change went into effect in September after the new city council was sworn in, explained this was a way to connect more with the deaf and hard of hearing community here in Charlotte.
Donna McCord-Smolik, who is deaf and communicates with ASL, says it’s a game changer.
“I’m thrilled!” she signed.
