OAKLEY, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati petitioners are fighting to get the question of leasing Cincinnati's parking assets on a ballot in November.

Cincinnati City Council voted on Wednesday in favor of a 30-year privatized parking lease.

In the aftermath, a Hamilton County Common Pleas judge issued a restraining order against the city manager and the City of Cincinnati.

Organizers who oppose the plan were in Westwood on Monday and in Oakley on Sunday collecting signatures, in addition to a number of other locations.

The coalition needs to collect approximately 7,500 signatures in 25 days or less to secure a position on the November ballot. Petitions can only be signed by Cincinnati voters.

Leading the petition drive are Councilmember Christopher Smitherman, Amy Murray and Pete Witte.

The next court hearing for the restraining order is scheduled for March 15th in state court.
