A second draft of Worthington’s proposed nondiscrimination ordinance has been completed and will be proposed to Worthington City Council on Monday, March 11, according to a meeting agenda.
The Worthington Community Relations Commission, which is made up of nine community members appointed by City Council, issued the second draft March 7, said Lori Trego, staff liaison for the Community Relations Commission, personnel director and assistant to the city manager for Worthington.
The ordinance is intended to provide protections against discrimination of age, ancestry, color, disability, familial status, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital status, military status, national origin, race, sex and sexual orientation, Trego said.
A copy of the draft is available on the city’s website, worthington.org, Trego said. The second draft shows where the old one has been modified through the use of blue text, she said.
The second draft will be presented at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Worthington Municipal Building, 6550 N. High St.
Trego said Community Relations Commission chairman Jack Miner and city law director Tom Lindsey would present the changes.
