PARMA, Ohio — The city of Parma has chosen to let residents decide if they should continue with a pit bull ban.

At Monday's city council meeting, they voted unanimously to put it on the May ballot.

If Parma residents vote to change the ordinance, it would go in place within 30 days of the certified vote. The certified vote occurs with 25 days of the election.

Parma has had a pit bull ban in place for more than 31 years.
