The 100th domestic partnership was registered within the City of Sarasota last week, less than three months after the program began. The success of the registry has generated interest from other Florida municipalities inquiring about possibly using the City of Sarasota’s program as a model. The City Commission approved the program and registrations began November 6, 2012.
The registry offers domestic partners many rights within the city limits including health care decisions, hospital visitations, correctional facility visitations and funeral decisions. City of Sarasota residents as well as non-residents may register.
Partners may register in the Office of the City Auditor and Clerk located in Room 110 within City Hall, 1565 First Street. Registration hours are as follows:
Tuesday – Thursday: 9am – noon; 1pm – 4pm.
Appointments also can be scheduled by contacting the Office of the City Auditor and Clerk: 941-954-4160.
