Morehead Council Approves Fairness Ordinance

Morehead city council has given preliminary approval to a fairness ordinance prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation. The measure passed without dissent at its first reading Monday night.

A draft of the ordinance was initially presented in September but Councilman Tom Carew says Morehead officials wanted to compare it to similar measures on the books in other Kentucky cities…

Carew says final approval of the ordinance is likely in December.
