BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - Bay City officials have voted to approve an anti-discrimination ordinance that has protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The Bay City Times (https://bit.ly/1VzIfWG ) reports the Bay City Commission voted 8-0 Monday to approve the ordinance. It also includes protections for people with physical or mental disabilities. Deputy City Manager Dana Muscott says the ordinance takes effect Friday.

Bay County Commissioner Michael Lutz said he was concerned about part of the ordinance that requires city contractors to follow it. Muscott says open bids will not have to sign a form agreeing to the measure. She says future bids will require that businesses sign a form agreeing to abide by Bay City’s ordinances, which they do already.
