LAUREL HILL — City officials on Tuesday will move toward placing a dissolution ordinance on a future ballot.

Two items on the meeting agenda pertain to a proposed ordinance that would allow Laurel Hill residents to vote on the whether the north community should remain a city.

One item involves discussing a fact sheet that would list pros and cons of dissolving Laurel Hill.

Council Chairperson Larry Hendren is working on the fact sheet, which would be mailed to residents after he gets fellow city and Okaloosa County officials’ approval.

"This will give the citizens insight before they make a decision on whether or not they want a dissolution," he said.

Residents would receive the information in advance of a March 2014 referendum.

In addition, the council on Tuesday will discuss creating a timeline for placing the ordinance on next year’s ballot. The timeline would include circulating the fact sheet and the scheduling the ordinance’s first and second readings before the matter appears on the ballot.
