Some members of Akron City Council are still at odds over the city charter amendment that would remove staggered terms for members of council.
City Council President Marco Sommerville explains what the city will do in order to get support for the issue.
"City Council has already passed it, it's already going on the ballot, this just allows us to put signs on city property as well as other public property," Sommerville said.
Council passed a resolution 10-3 Monday night in support of placing signs within Akron asking people to vote for the charter amendment in November.
However, that does not please Ward 2 Councilman Bruce Kilby.
"This is asking voters to vote for something that mostly benefits this council and the mayor," Kilby said.
"I think it's highly inappropriate and it should have been voted down."
Kilby filed suit last week in the Ohio Supreme Court challenging the ballot language for the charter issue calling it "an abuse of power."
Sommerville disagreed, saying that the issue would save the city money and create a more efficient government.
In July, Council also voted 10-3 in favor of changes which would potentially hold all member elections at the same time as well as limit raises for Council and the Mayor to averages seen in the private sector.
Sommerville says Issue 3, if passed would save the city an estimated $200,000 for each election eliminated by increasing the current two-year terms of Ward Council Representatives to four years.
"That money would hire more police and fire for this city," Sommerville explained.
Kilby says the cost savings aren't that significant and won't be seen for another five years if it passes.
"It won't be any cost savings until 2017, and then it's only $50,000 for a $502 million operating budget and that's not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things."
Voters will decide in less than 60 days on November 6.
In other business, Council also passed a resolution expressing support for the $2.25 mill Summit County Children Services Levy, which will also be going on the November ballot.
