According to Parma City Council President Sean Brennan, residents have contributed only $610 to the crowdfunding campaign due to what he speculates is a level of wariness with the online fundraising website.
As it stands, folks have dropped off or mailed in more than $5,000 in contributions to the touristy signage program.
Brennan wants to raise more than $20,000 though, and plans to pull anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 from the Parma Run-Walk for Pierogies coffer.
The city official isn't yet sure how many signs the city will order, or where they'll be placed; however, he pledged the program is moving forward.
He also promised that no taxpayer money will be fed into the initiative.
