The Fayetteville Town Council approved a motion to draft a non-discrimination ordinance at their meeting Thursday, March 4, following some tense moments.

Originally, the town council voted down the idea, which resulted in several residents storming out of the meeting in protest. The council then decided to hold further discussion on the matter.

“I’m very happy the town has seen the importance of this to our small town to make a stand that we are welcoming everybody,” said Adam Stephens, a Fayetteville resident. “We heavily rely on tourism here, and with the economy in the surrounding area, this is something that we should focus on more and more.”

The resolution will be presented at the next city council meeting.
