A judge is expected to decide by Monday whether a referendum can proceed in Miami Springs on Tuesday.
The referendum would be on whether to authorize the City Council to sell and rezone a 10,299-square-foot parking lot beside a a golf course for $115,000.
But six Miami Springs residents have sued to stop the city and the Miami-Dade County elections department from “proceeding in any manner with the April 8, 2014 special election.”
Resident John McCarty and five other plaintiffs say the referendum would violate the city charter. All six live on the golf course.
Judge Norma S. Lindsey held an emergency hearing in the case on Friday afternoon. After listening to all sides, she said she would give her decision by Monday.
This question will appear on the ballot:
"Shall the city council be authorized to sell and rezone the 10,299 square foot (less than a quarter of an acre) of golf course property adjacent to the former James Medical Clinic currently under license agreement as a parking area to proposed contract purchasers for $115,000?"
The special election is scheduled to take place Tuesday at the city’s community center, 1401 Westward Dr. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
