Columbia’s city council has unanimously voted to place the controversial roll cart issue on the August ballot.

The city council voted unanimously Monday evening to place the issue on the ballot, after a proposal to repeal to ban was defeated by a four-to-three vote. Resident Rachel Proffitt collected enough signatures of registered voters for an initiative, under the city charter. The council had two choices last night: either repeal the ban on roll carts or submit the issue to voters in August.

The issue will appear on Columbia’s citywide ballot on August 2.
