(Toledo, OH) Toledo voters have a chance to make their voices heard on whether a regional water deal is a good idea.
Toledo's mayor and city council are hosting a public forum on a potential November vote on changing the city charter to form a regional water panel. Toledo City Council only has a week to decide whether to put the issue on the ballot.
Toledo's mayor is forwarding a proposal to have a panel of utility directors-- both Toledo and suburban-- to set future water rates. That proposal has the backing of the watchdog group "Protect Our Water.
The city would retain ownership of the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant-- an issue that ended talks with suburban communities. The public forum starts at 5 p.m. at Government Center.
