LIMAVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Residents of a small village in eastern Ohio will decide if it will cease to exist as an unincorporated municipality.

The Repository in Canton reports (https://bit.ly/1JDan5a ) that residents in Limaville, Ohio, will vote in a special election in August on whether to dissolve the municipality.

Resident Porter Loving headed efforts to collect voter signatures to get the issue on the ballot. He says the village doesn’t collect enough revenue to maintain civic needs such as new storm sewers and the repair of bridges.

The 17 signatures validated by the Stark County Board of Elections were four more than required.

Porter says services in the village about 20 miles southeast of Akron would be handled by nearby Lexington Township, if voters approve the issue.

Limaville has a population of about 150.
