In February 2012, on a non-binding referendum, the citizens of Sevojno voted for the creation of a separate urban municipality within the City of Užice. However, residents of nearby villages of Zlakusa, Gorjani and Krvavci did not support the initiative. Assembly of the City eventually supported formation of the municipality.
In 2013, the city municipality of Sevojno was established. As of October 2013[update] the budget negotiations are under way.
