Mayors Upset Over Sylvania Twp. TARTA Vote

(Toledo, OH) Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz is being joined by the mayors of Maumee and Rossford in being upset by Sylvania Township preventing a county-wide vote on expanding public transit.  

The township board voted 2-to-1 to block it from going on the ballot, with Maumee Mayor Richard Carr saying voters should have made the decision, not two people in one township.  

Carr says he has issues with the proposal, but his job is to place the issue in front of the public.

All seven TARTA member communities had to approve admitting Lucas County as a member as a first step toward putting a county-wide sales tax on the November ballot.
