East Cleveland will formally announce its intentions to merge with the City of Cleveland when it presents its annexation petition on Wednesday.
East Cleveland Mayor Gary Norton announced the city will present the petition to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections after receiving three times the required signatures.
Norton will hand over the petition at 2 p.m. at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, located at 2925 Euclid Avenue.
The petition will allow the citizens of East Cleveland to vote on whether they want to create a commission to study the merger of the two cities.
The Cleveland City Council would have to agree to accept the formation of the commission if East Cleveland residents choose to vote “yes.”
