Cincinnati Charter Amendment, Voter Approval (November 2009)
This Charter amendment sought to change the way the city council makes decisions on selling any assets of the city of Cincinnati in regards to its regional water and sewer districts. This charter amendment will make it so that a vote by the city residents must take place before the council makes a decision on the matter. This was also pushed by the group Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes who demanded that voters should approve the sale of the 170 year old Greater Cincinnati Water Works.
The measure was approved.
