After five months and four delays, the Roeland Park city council on Monday is scheduled to vote at last on an anti-discrimination that would offer legal protections to residents based on their sexual orientation and gender identity. If approved, the ordinance would make Roeland Park just the second city in the state to have such a law on its books (Lawrence passed a similar ordinance in the 1990s).
The Roeland Park city administrator’s office earlier this week released a version of the final text of the ordinance the council is slated to vote on Monday.
Do you think the ordinance will pass? Do you have any concerns about the proposed law? Do you wish other northeast Johnson County cities would take up consideration of similar laws?
