Evansville City Council pass a resolution to research how much it would cost to extend city benefits to certain types of domestic partnerships.

When the idea of extending city benefits first came about, there was talk of an ordinance that would recognize civil unions and same-sex marriages recognized in different states.
   
But much has changed since then.
   
The council is now looking at including other domestic partnerships as well, those between unmarried same sex couples and unmarried opposite sex couples.
   
One person voiced his disapproval of such changes at the meeting.

If city benefits do undergo changes someday, it's unclear if it will be the administration or City Council authorizing them.
