The toughest non-discrimination ordinance in the state received unanimous approval from the Delhi Township board Oct. 1. The ordinance attempts to protect members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community from being denied service, employment or housing because of their sexual orientation or identity. The ordinance provides the most severe punishments in the state. It carries a $500 fine for a first offense, $750 for a second and $1,000 for a third.
