GF Housing Discrimination

GF Housing Discrimination

Oct 8, 2013 at 7:29 am


After nearly two hours of debate the grand forks council passed a housing discrimination ordinance last night.  The law covers all forms of discrimination including sexual orientation and gender identity.   A number of people spoke out both for and against the measure.

Violators could face a loss of a certificate of occupany license and or a 500 dollar fine.

Grand forks will become the first city in the state to adopt such an ordinance.  The law allows exemptions for religious housing…single family homes…and four-plexes where the owner resides.   The council approved the plan on a five-to-two vote.
