BOSTON (AP) - A Boston city councilor wants to let local residents weigh in on the plan to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to Boston.

Councilor Josh Zakim said Monday that he’s filed an order for four nonbinding Olympics-related ballot questions. He plans to present the order to the full city council on Wednesday.

The questions would ask if the city should host the games; if any public money should be used; if the city should promise to cover any overruns; and if the city should use eminent domain to take private land for the games.

To appear on the ballot, the questions would require a majority vote of the city council and the approval of Mayor Martin Walsh.

If approved, the questions would appear on the Boston Municipal Election ballot in November.
