Hamilton County weighing in on city parking plan

Hamilton County Commissioners feel they were left in the dark as the city and the Port Authority worked out Cincinnati's proposed parking outsourcing plan. They're drafting a letter to the city to make sure that doesn't happen again.

Commission President Chris Monzel says, "Making sure there's no risk exposure on the county's part forĀ  what the Port's doing with the city and vice versa if we go off and do something with the county, could that hurt the city in any way. Those type of things, I think, need to be figured out in the future."

The Port Authority is a joint venture between the County and the City.

Monzel says that letter could be ready within a week.

Over-the-Rhine's Memorial Hall is set to get a facelift. Commissioners are expected to vote Wednesday to sign a lease agreement with 3CDC to operate the historic facility. The deal will include major renovations including adding air conditioning, a new roof and facade repairs.
