City rejects petitions on Q arena referendum

(Cleveland, OH) - Cleveland City Council is refusing to accept petitions calling for repeal of a measure that permits taxpayers to cover some of the costs of improvements at Quicken Loans Arena. 

Deputy Clerk of City Council Allan Dreyer said that the move would "unconstitutionally impair an already executed and binding contract."  The city already has a deal with Cuyahoga County and the Cavs.  

The petitions were an effort to stop the Q contract unless funds for neighborhood improvements were worked into the deal.
