The Grand Island City
Council is again taking a look at policies affecting the city's GLBT community.
The city council has been asked to bar discrimination based on sexual orientation from city employment policies.
The proposal is scheduled
to be considered at the city council's meeting Tuesday evening. The proposal would add the
protection to only city policies and would not affect any other employer
in Grand Island.
The council has already
rejected a measure that would have barred businesses from discriminating
against current or prospective employees based on their sexual
orientation as well as in housing and retail situations.
City policies already bar discrimination on the
basis of race, color, religion, sex, mental or physical disability,
marital status, national origin or genetic information.
