OLIVETTE, Mo. (KMOX) — Olivette City Council members voted unanimously Tuesday night, to establish a domestic partnership registry.
The domestic partnership registry is similar to one recently approved in University City.
Olivette’s registry would allow individuals aged 18 and older and who share a residence to file with the city clerk a declaration of registered domestic partnership.
The registry will cost $45 to join and will simply recognize partnerships between unmarried adults as long as they are living together.
Council members also approved an ordinance making it illegal to fire somebody solely for being gay, lesbian or transgender.
