City officials in Danville have tabled an anti-discrimination proposal.
The so-called fairness ordnance would prohibit discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Commissioners must approve the proposal twice before it is adopted.
Commissioners asked city attorney Steven Dexter, who drafted the document with help from City Manager Ron Scott, to review the issues that were discussed and provide a report of on his findings before April 28.
If the ordinance is approved, Danville would join a half-dozen other cities that have passed similar measures.
