Why isn't this project on the ballot for the voters to decide?
It can be. However, upon a thorough search of Ohio Revised Code (O.R.C.), a ballot issue in this case can only give the voters the ability to render an advisory opinion on the matter that is "non-binding." Ultimately, the decision to move forward with the project is rendered by Xenia City Council.
