TOLEDO (WTOL) - Toledo City Council unanimously approved the $275,000 needed for February's special election Tuesday night.

The special election covers the Keep The Jail Downtown initiative.

If the initiative passes, that would require any new jail to be built in a downtown Toledo district.

This special election is on the heels of an Ohio Supreme Court Decision saying that since the Keep the Jail Downtown petition was properly submitted, the city needs to pass an ordinance to have it put on the ballot.
