Lucas County living wage proposal on hold.

Commissioners have decided to hold a policy creating a living wage requirement for businesses doing business with Lucas County while the Prosecutor's Office reviews the resolution.

As I've stated previously, my understanding from the last time such a proposal was made is that counties have no authority to impose such requirements. Assistant Prosecutor John Borell gave us that decision in 2005.

He is the person to whom this resolution was referred so we'll see if anything has changed since then.

Maggie,

"Damn the legalities, full speed ahead." How can our County Commissioners let the Ohio Revised Code get in the way of doing the compassionate thing?
(OK, sarcasm off)
