Grandville Residents Push for Non Discrimination Ordinance
On Monday night, the City of Grandville held its first city council meeting since the owner of Dieseltec made it to the national spotlight due to his statements about refusing to serve openly gay customers.
Many residents spoke at Monday's meeting, calling for the city to create an ordinance that would ban discrimination.
The city council stated that an ordinance isn't needed because of Grandville's code of ethics.
"We the elected representatives of the City of Grandville confirm that Grandville, a community of over 15,000 residents and over 18 million visitors each year, believe in individual rights and fair treatment of everyone," councilmember Lee Cook stated.
The council voted to reaffirm the code of ethics, five votes to two.
