To vote yes, or no that's the question in April's Rock Island County referendum.
Thursday night, county leaders held a meeting to inform the public about the referendum.
It would give more power to the county building commission, allowing them to renovate the county's aging administrative building and courthouse.
But some taxpayers, like Carl Granata, say they're hesitant to give them that power with out any info.
"Would you just hand me your check book not knowing me? Basically that is what we're doing. We don't know where it's going to be, location, we don't even know the blueprints. How can you just trust that when they say we'll do that after the referendum goes through? I'm sorry, it doesn't go."
But county leaders say this is the most economical decision. They say since the building is not up to code a lawsuit could be filed by anyone, costing taxpayers much more money.
