View Comments

EAGAN, Minn. (WCCO) – The Eagan City Council has voted to set up a domestic partner registry.

On Tuesday evening, the council voted to set up a voluntary registry allowing same-sex couples to register their partnerships.

It would cost $25 to register partnerships, and would cost the same amount to terminate them.

The city joins 16 other communities in Minnesota with similar set-ups. According to the Pioneer Press, Minneapolis was the first city in Minnesota to set up a same-sex domestic partner registry, back in 1991.
