Wheeling's Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 38 has filed a petition to block the vote on Wheeling's 2 man cruiser ordinance.
The petition was filed in Ohio County Circuit Court Tuesday afternoon.
Wheeling Attorney Steve Herndon is representing Local 38.
Wheeling Solicitor Rosemary Humway Warmuth said the City of Wheeling has not been served with the petition.
The 2 man cruiser ordinance has been the center of controversy for decades and this vote would have left it up to residents to decide.
Police Chief Shawn Schwertfeger previously said there is an efficiency issue, and there are advantages to a one man cruiser.
But he added in high crime areas during certain times of the day two men in a cruiser may be needed.
Schwertfeger said it would be his decision to make ,if the two man cruiser ordinance was repealed.
