Clearwater voters consider aquarium referendum

CLEARWATER, Fla (News Channel 8)- The fliers are in the mailbox to persuade Clearwater voters in the aquarium referendum.

A 'yes' vote changes the city charter, allowing the city of Clearwater to enter into negotiations on a lease of city hall property to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

The aquarium wants to build a $160 million facility on the bluff.
