Two resolutions are set to be introduced Tuesday, March 19, to Westerville’s City Council regarding equality and nondiscrimination issues.
Adam Maxwell, the city’s administrative-services director, said both items were identified as short-term goals to expand the city’s nondiscrimination efforts during the Feb. 19 council meeting.
He said the first resolution would give council’s direction to staff to expand the city’s nondiscrimination policy.
“It really boils down to sexual orientation, gender expression and gender identification,” he said.
The second is a resolution that would show support of Senate Bill 11, which expands protections for gender identification, sexual orientation and gender expression in the state of Ohio.
He said council members could act on the resolutions on Tuesday or take more time to consider them.
Also on Tuesday’s agenda is a resolution that would support of Uptown Westerville being added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The meeting is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday inside council chambers at City Hall, 21 S. State St.
