Edmonds extends health benefits to domestic partners
Edmonds extends health benefits to domestic partners
Domestic partners of city of Edmonds employees will be offered health coverage through the city's employee benefits plan, the City Council decided this week.

The council voted 6-0 to extend benefits to employees' senior or same-sex significant others - a right previously given only to married couples. Councilwoman Deanna Dawson was absent from the Tuesday night council meeting.

Couples must be registered with the state as domestic partners in order to receive benefits.

The city did not extend benefits to heterosexual domestic partners because they have the option of getting married and receiving coverage. The move protects the city from lawsuits, city officials said.
