Following months of deliberation, it could soon be left up to the voters.
During Thursday night's meeting, Uhrichsville council recommended that a police levy be placed on the November ballot as a means of generating much-needed money for the city.
Council President Mick Donato says the recommendation comes after council considered a police levy, water park levy, and income tax increase as viable options.
While the 7.4 mill levy is expected to generate $400,000 annually, Donato says that still leaves the city short.
Donato says he expects the measure to pass at council's July meeting, in order to meet the August 8th filing deadline. From there, it will be approved by the county auditor and presented to the Tuscarawas County Board of Elections.
Once the levy is set for November, Donato says the campaigning then begins.
If approved by voters on November 6th, Donato says the city will not see any money generated from the levy until approximately March or April of 2013.
