Marathon Non Discrimination Ordinance Meeting

LLL city council 6 10 14

As of this post, 5:39 a.m., June 10, 2014 the Non Discrimination Ordinance agenda item is still going on at city council chambers.Mayor Tom Hanel said,

165 citizens signed up to speak tonight and we are at about 100.

That was stated at 4:00 a.m.  The ones that are “for” the ordinance and “against” are about even.  Agenda item 7 is a new record for time of discussion for the present city council and Mayor in Billings.  The discussion on this item has been going on since 8:45 p.m. June 9th.

The final citizen ended the public comment at 5:42 a.m. June 10th.  There seems to be great interest from a variety of view points on this ordinance.  It seems to me more work needs to be done before a conclusion is reached.

If a Non Discrimination Ordinance is passed for Billings, does it protect all citizens?  This issue is about more than just the LGBT community. (Lesbian, Gay, Bi Sexual, Transgender).

Eran Thompson from “Not in Our Town” will join us on the Billings Morning News after 8 a.m. today to give detailed information of why this ordinance is so interesting to Billings citizens.

After the testimony, 5:54 a.m., the motion has failed on vote from the City Council, and as I understand it, the ordinance will be re-visited on June 16th in City Council Chambers.
