The Carrollton City Council will discuss adding nondiscrimination to the city charter at its meeting on Tuesday, Jan 22, according to Carrollton real estate broker and LGBT activist Bob McCrainie. The regulation would protect city employees.

The council’s work session begins at 5:45 p.m. and the council meeting begins at 7 p.m. Public comment is allowed at the council meeting, but more of the work is done at the earlier session. Both are open to the public. Only Carrollton residents would normally be allowed to comment. Before becoming part of a city charter, amendments must go to a vote of the public.

This is the proposition that will be considered:

  • Proposition No. 11: Shall Section 10.02 of the City Charter be amended to prohibit discrimination based on age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and pregnancy, in addition to the previously enacted prohibitions?
