CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts says city council will not discuss the non-discrimination ordinance Monday evening during the City Council Meeting.

Roberts released the following statement:

“The City of Charlotte continues its commitment to be a welcoming community that honors and respects all people. We appreciate the state wanting to find a solution to the challenges we are facing and applaud the governor for recognizing the state should overturn HB2, which the state can do at any time without any action from the City of Charlotte. We are not prepared to add this item to our agenda this evening, however, we urge the state to take action as soon as possible and encourage continued dialogue with the broader community.”
