A group of citizens in Medina County looking to be able to vote on the city’s courthouse project were dealt a blow by the Ohio Supreme Court Tuesday. The state high court ruled against the group called Save Your Courthouse, who had asked for more time to gather signatures on a petition to allow citizens of Medina to vote on the $38 million courthouse renovation project. The group had collected over 1,000 signatures but the Medina Board of Elections only validated 690, with 983 required to validate the petition. Medina County Commissioners will hold a public meeting in October at the Buffalo Creek Retreat in Seville to allow the public to look at the full plans for the courthouse renovation project.
