FAIRMONT CITY COUNCIL SPECIAL MEETING  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2017 3:30 P.M. COUNCIL CHAMBERS  PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING  500 QUINCY STREET FAIRMONT, WEST VIRGINIA  

A G E N D A  (This special meeting Friday at 3:30 is for the city council of Fairmont to consider removing the controversial proposed city ordinance public hearing and vote from the agenda currently scheduled for Tuesday night September 12.

There are safety concerns related to possible crowd size and protestors. The mayor informed us that the city’s police don’t believe they can be as effective as they’d like, managing the expected crowd at the current council chambers location.

Title Email: Please Vote to Remove the 482 Ordinance from the City Agenda and Postpone Indefinitely

Dear Council Member,

This ordinance on sexual orientation and gender identity is dividing Fairmont, WV. It’s bad for business liability. And it’s bad for building bridges between different groups. Please Vote to Remove the 482 Ordinance from the City Agenda Indefinitely. Other West Virginia cities have already learned there is no need for this ordinance in Fairmont or anywhere.

Sincerely,

(your name)
