(Toledo, OH) Toledo City Council delays a vote for a week to place a regional water commission issue on the ballot.
Toledo City Council members delayed their decision Tuesday after changes were made to the original commission structure. At issue are amendments that place Toledo representatives at the head of the water commission board and increases the time City Council has to veto water rates proposed by commission members.
City council would have 45 days to veto rates, instead of 30. City council members want more time to think about other proposed changes, which also include language about discounted rates offered to seniors, lead-line replacement, and programs to assist low-income customers.
The plan to supply water to Toledo and some suburbs will be on a special meeting agenda next week.
