(KSL News) -- The Mayor of Ogden wants the city to pay for a multimillion dollar recreation center, but opponents say the public should get a chance to vote on it.

They are now circulating petitions to put the issue before voters.

Mayor Matthew Godfrey says he's confident the public would approve the plan if given a chance to vote. But he says a vote will cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars in interest payments.

Ogden plans to issue 19.5- million dollars worth of bonds to a health and fitness company. The company would build the recreation center, but the city would own it.
