Oshtemo anti-discrimination ordinance passes

Lead in text: 
Trustee Dave Bushouse cast the lone dissenting vote, saying that he didn't think the township had jurisdiction on the issue.
The non-discrimination ordinance, closely modeled on one recently adopted by Kalamazoo Township, prohibits discrimination in housing, public accommodation or employment based on race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, height, weight, marital status, familial status, citizenship, physical or mental disability, gender identity, sexual orientation or genetic information.
