CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Opponents of Cincinnati's parking plan presented a petition on Thursday afternoon at City Hall to get the measure on the November ballot.
City Council approved a measure to outsource the city's parking. The plan would give he city $92 million up front and $3 million year. However, a group of citizens filed a lawsuit against the city and Judge Robert Winkler granted a permanent injunction to stop the city from moving forward with the plan.
The citizens want the issue on the November ballot and circulated a petition. On Thursday afternoon, they presented the petition with 19,893 signatures to the City Finance Director's Office. They need 50% of those signatures to be valid to meet the 8,522 requirement.
The petition will remain at the City Finance Director's Office for 10 days as public record. It will then be delivered to the Board of Elections to validate the signatures.
Mayor Mark Mallory has said that if the measure goes to a ballot, they city will be forced to lay off workers, including police officers and firefighters in order to have a balance budget by July 1.
