Elected officials from Richmond and Madison County did not embrace a proposal Tuesday from Berea Mayor Steve Connelly to create a countywide human-rights commission. That leaves the Berea City Council to create a commission on its own. The Berea council gave first reading to an ordinance July 19 that would create a human rights commission. A second reading and final vote will come in September, said Connelly and council member Truman Fields.
