GRAND ISLAND — Grand Island City Attorney Bob Sivick has been asked to draft a city ordinance to protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations.
The proposed resolution is to be released to the public Friday afternoon and will be up for a vote at the City Council’s 7 p.m. meeting Tuesday.
The Omaha and Lincoln City Councils passed similar protections on sexual orientation earlier this year. Omaha’s is still in place. Lincoln’s was rescinded by the council after voters gathered enough signatures on a petition to overturn the law.
