TIFFIN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

After a million-dollar cut from the state and a failed levy in November, the City of Tiffin had to eliminate funding for the city pool and Fourth of July fireworks show. Now a committee has raised a portion of the money needed to keep the pool open this year.

Jan Betz heads the committee that has been going to local businesses asking for donations. So far they've raised about $15,000, but they need at least $27,000 more.

"We were born and raised here, most of us," Betz said. "And the amenities that the community offers mean everything."

The YMCA is taking over the operation of the pool, but they are not funding it.

The community needs to raise the money by early April to open this pool this summer.

Those in charge of the fireworks show are putting together a festival in June to raise money.

Any extra money raised will go toward next year's fund.

To donate to the cause, people can send money to 25 Melmore Street, Tiffin, Ohio. Checks need to be made out to, "Tiffin Pool and Fireworks Fund."
