The Perrysburg city
council voted unanimously to add a levy to the May ballot, in a second attempt
to raise money for a public transit system.
Some council members
believe the language on the previous ballot may have been part of the reason
why the levy failed before.
"It wasn't obscure, but it
could've been clearer," said Council Member Todd Grayson. "I think it will help
that people understand that the main underlying factor to all of this is
helping disabled folks get around the city."
But city residents are the
most thankful to give the levy another shot.
"There's a lot of wealthy
people in Perrysburg, there's well-to-do people, there's healthy people,"
Sharon Hoover said. "It's just not really well-known that there are disabled
people and low-income people who need this…This service is very important."
