Council sends Waterville amphitheater proposal to BOE for potential voter referendum
WATERVILLE, Ohio (WTVG) - Waterville City Council voted to leave the decision to build an amphitheater in the community to voters but there’s one more hurdle to clear first before that can happen.
Council met Monday night to decide whether to repeal its previous approval to build the controversial amphitheater or to send the idea to a voter referendum. Council members landed on the latter but the Board of Elections still needs to approve it before it goes on the ballot.
The proposal to build the amphitheater just off of US-24 and State Route 64 has divided the community in recent months. While some see it as an opportunity to generate revenue for the city, others see it as a potential nuisance to those who live nearby.
