Lake Erie Bill of Rights headed to Lucas County Board of Elections
Many Lake Erie Bill of Rights supporters attended Tuesday's city council meeting, and left satisfied.
Council voted unanimously to send the proposal to the Lucas County Board of Elections.
If approved there, it would appear on the special election in February, along with the vote to keep the jail downtown.
The board of elections and Ohio Supreme Court shot down the issue earlier this year.
"You can get something out of persevering. We know we want to keep going, so when we get a little victory like this, it just gives us enough energy to go on to the next obstacle," said Organizer, Markie Miller.
The funding for the special election was approved today, as well. It'll cost up to 275 thousand dollars for taxpayers.
