Morehead Fairness Ordinance

Oct 16, 2013

Even though it wasn’t on the agenda for this week’s Morehead city council meeting…Mayor David Perkins says the panel will likely hear the first reading of a proposed “Fairness Ordinance” next month.

Perkins says the city’s attorney has been working with the Kentucky Human Rights Commission to finalize the wording and details of the legislation. He believes that crafting the proposed ordinance should not be that difficult…

The "Fairness Ordinance" would prohibit discrimination based on sexual preference or gender identity in such things as restaurants, employment and housing.
