Brazil City Council meets early due to Thanksgiving holiday

Thursday, November 15, 2012

The Brazil City Council met for their monthly meeting Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m.

The council met a week early due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

The council approved the minutes for October's meeting, and dealt with old business.

The council reported the Fair Housing Ordinance will update the definition of family to include single individuals. City attorney Traci Lawson said the revised ordinance would include a definition of families regardless of actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender or marital status of its members.

The ordinance will be brought up again in December for a second reading.

New business discussed in the meeting included a resolution, declaring it economically unjustifiable to sell 523 Kruzan Street.

The city bought the property during a commissioner's sale, but say they don't have the funds to fully develop it now.

The resolution was passed, and the property will be put up for sale.

A resolution was also passed to place funds from oil well money into the Rainy Day Fund.

The council will meet again Dec. 12, at 7 p.m., at City Hall.

I suppose two gay people living together wouldn't be any worse than babies mama's baby-maker living there collecting off her welfare check producing more babies for more money. At least two gays can't reproduce.
