Duluth Adopts Domestic Parnter Registry

On a vote of 5-3-1 the Duluth City Council passed an ordinance creating a domestic partner registry in the City.

Duluth is my hometown, so I am happy to see this pass. I also support Councilor Fedora's motion to create a dissolution fee (seeing as how there is an application fee). There are domestic relationships that will undoubtedly end in separation, therefore, there should be a fee associated with the process to end that relationship since the City has to send notification when one of the partners decides to dissolve the registration.
