NORTH PORT — A presentation
touting the benefits of a domestic partnership registry is going forward, after North Port city commissioners recently deadlocked on whether they would hear the proposal during a regular commission meeting.
Former city of Sarasota commissioner Ken Shelin will make the presentation Monday, after which he will ask commissioners to craft an ordinance that would allow for domestic partners to register in the city. A similar ordinance was recently approved and implemented in the city of Sarasota, and another is forthcoming in the city of Venice, after Shelin made the same presentation.
