CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cuyahoga County Council will meet Tuesday at 3:30 p.m., and a vote on the sin tax is possible.

Council is being urged to put the renewal issue on May ballot. Voters approved the original sin tax in 1990.

Money raised from the sale of alcohol and cigarettes helped build Cleveland's professional sports stadiums. The proposal would help cover maintenance costs.

Committee of the whole meeting begins at 3:30 p.m., the public hearing on the extension of the alcohol and cigarette excise taxes is at 4:45 p.m. The council will also conduct a regular meeting at 5 p.m.
