Racine Common Council Sends Domestic Partner Benefit Proposal Back to Committee

At the Wednesday, February 22nd Racine Common Council Meeting, the Finance & Personnel Committee recommended to the Council that the matter of domestic partner benefits for Racine employees be considered by the Committee of the Whole.
