LUCAS COUNTY - At a Lucas County Commissioner's meeting Tuesday, Sept. 1, mayoral candidate Ben Konop (D) proposed a YMCA oversight committee to follow the organization's finances.

Konop argued that the YMCA is funded with taxpayer dollars and should, therefore, be more transparent with finances.

The other two commissioners, Gerken and Skeldon-Wozniak, voted to table the proposal. Konop voted not to table the proposal.

With a vote of 2-1, the oversight committee will not move forward at this time.
