The Danville City Commission Monday voted to table a first reading of a proposed fairness ordinance until recent documents pertaining to the legalities of the ordinance can be reviewed and a workshop held to discuss those legalities.
The ordinance is similar to one that has been proposed to the Shelbyville City Council by the Shelby County chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth. Shelbyville officials have said they do not plan to act on proposed ordinance.
City Commissioner Paul Smiley motioned to table first reading of the ordinance scheduled for Monday in light of documents received by the commission.
John O. Sheller, an attorney for the Louisville-based law firm Stoll, Keenon and Ogden, who represents Sunrise Children's Services, questioned the validity of the ordinance in a letter addressed to Mayor Bernie Hunstad and shared with the commission.
And several other inquiries were made about potential changes, from both residents and Keith D. Duerr, managing attorney for the Kentucky Human Rights Commission.
“We are at a point in time where perhaps we need to have a special workshop to consider all the comments received and additional legal points raised,” said Scott.
Smiley stands by his vote to have a first reading.
“However, as we go through the ordinance – and there are parts that are being discussed, the pros and cons of individual items – I am going to be open-minded and listen mostly from our attorney and from the other commissioners, from the mayor and from citizens until we come to some closure,” said Smiley.
