Daviess County fairness ordinance rescheduled for April
OWENSBORO — Daviess County has rescheduled a vote on a fairness ordinance for April 2 because of a glitch in the system.
The Owensboro Times reported that the Daviess County Fiscal Court had to reschedule a second reading and the vote for a fairness ordinance because a “glitch” in their system didn’t give the required seven days notice.
The online newspaper said that the vote was originally planned for March 19. A fairness ordinance would add LGBTQ to the local human rights ordinance.
Although this is one of the few things not postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Fiscal Court is still taking it into account.
“We will continue to monitor the situation and take guidance from Federal and state organizations, as well the CDC, WHO and state and local health officials,” Judge-Executive Al Mattingly told the Times. “Things are always subject to re-evaluation and change.”
