SALINA, Kan. (AP) The Salina City Council is scheduled to vote in two weeks on a petition to repeal an expanded nondiscrimination ordinance.
The council in May added sexual orientation and gender identity to the city’s anti-discrimination ordinance. Soon after, opponents began gathering signatures for petitions to repeal the ordinance.
City Manager Jason Gage told city commissioners Monday they will be asked to vote on the petition on Sept. 10.
The Salina Journal reports the city commission has 20 days from when the petition was submitted to either repeal the new ordinance or put it to a public vote in 90 days.
