Voters to weigh-in on wastewater treatment renovation project
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Backtracking on their decision a day prior, Toledo City Council voted Wednesday to ask voters whether the city should move forward with a renovation for the Bay View Wastewater Treatment facility.
Officials with the Lucas County Board of Elections say the council turned in the proposal to the BOE Wednesday afternoon. The ballot language will then be sent to prosecutors and the Secretary of State to make sure it is correct and appropriate.
Voters will decide in the Nov. 7 election whether to make an effort to improve the plant. The ballot question is posed as a nonbinding issue, meaning it’s meant to gauge how residents feel about the proposal and doesn’t necessarily result in a specific action, the city’s law director told our media partner the Blade.
The massive renovation project could cost up to $900 million over 20 years.
