Mayor Art Ward said today that he's already signed the petition to have the chief operating officer proposal reach the ballot box on November 4.
Ward said he wants to give people the chance to vote against the idea.
A petition drive kicks off Saturday when supporters of the plan begin their effort to round up more than 3,000 signatures to force the city to put the Charter Revision Commission's recommendation on the ballot.
Ward voted against it when the council shot down the concept on a 5-2 vote, but signed the petition anyway because he's interested to see if there's enough support to get it on the ballot.
