Gay pride, flag display on council agenda

DECLARING JUNE to be “Gay Pride” month is on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove City Council. Also on the agenda is discussion of a policy for the display of flags at City Hall (WIkipedia).

Discussion of public support for gay rights didn’t end on May 14 when the Garden Grove City Council deadlocked 3 to 3 on voting on whether to display the rainbow “Gay Pride” flag at City Hall.

At Tuesday’s meeting of the council, two items on the agenda will touch on the issue. One consent item calls for the issuance of a proclamation declaring June 2019 as LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual] Pride month.

Under matters from city council members, Councilmember Kim Nguyen has requested discussion of a policy similar to the City of Fullerton for the display of flags at City Hall.

The policy, as shown as an attachment to the council agenda, gives the council the power to authorize the display of “commemorative flags” for no more than 45 consecutive days.

Also on the agenda is the introduction and first reading of an ordinance to establish a nepotism policy for city boards, committees and commissions.

At a 5:30 p.m. study session, the council will have a discussion “regarding a comprehensive approach on homelessness in Garden Grove.”

The regular session is scheduled for the council chambers in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave. at 7 p.m.
