BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KSDK) - Belleville voters may have the final say on a proposed new homeless shelter in the city.

Rev. Larry Rice wants the city to sell him the old YMCA building for $1 so he can reopen it as a homeless shelter.

On Monday Rice submitted a petition to get the measure on the April ballot.

Mayor Mark Eckert is not commenting until the petition is reviewed.
