indignation.

cited many instances where the ordinance may contribute to unacceptable behavior. He
expressed the opinion that the ordinance could lead to serious social consequences,
damage and death.

Paul Reimann, 1167 Pomona, said that approval of the Domestic Partnership Ordinance
would encourage the wrong types of moral behavior. He said that straight people are being
imposed upon as a result of recent judicial rulings, and that consciences are being
conditioned to think that a lesbian or gay lifestyle is acceptable.
BRENDON QUILTER - DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIP ORDINANCE
Brendon Quilter, 459 Skydale, said that he is against the Domestic Partnership Ordinance.
He said that laws against practices outlined in the ordinance are still on the books. He

RESOLUTION TO ELIMINATE THE $100 PREFERRED
PARKING SPACE PROGRAM
Whereas, Rate structures in the Parking System should be competitive and respond
to the market demands of the consumer as well as simple to administer; and
Whereas, The existing "reserved" parking space program leads to confusion and
anger from other regular permit holders and short term parking users; and
Whereas, The revenue implications are relatively minor compared to the goodwill
that would be created with the general public;
20 holders x $40 x 6 months = $4800 less fees generated by hourly sale of
that space which could possibly even be a net gain to the revenue stream
(20 spaces x 154 days x 12 hours x .40/hour x .5 use rate = $7392 as an
example);
RESOLVED, That the City of Ann Arbor abolish the "reserved" parking space
program provided that existing permit holders are allowed to purchase "regular" parking
permits for the structure where the space is located and at the approved rate scale. This
resolution would take full effect January 1, 1992.
