Two Hamilton County commissioners - Democrat Todd Portune and Republican Greg Hartmann - will be featured in Beyond Civility's new fall series of "Side-by-Side" conversations.
The two county commissioners will talk about their backgrounds and the influences that shaped their political views in a discussion on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at St. John's Unitarian Universalist Church, 320 Resor Ave., Clifton.
The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 6:30 p.m. and is preceded by a social hour with light refreshments at 5:30 p.m.
Hamilton County Commissioners are expected to vote Wednesday morning on re-opening the bidding process on some Metropolitan Sewer District projects.
The board initiated the moratorium to force renewed talks between the county and the city, which runs the sewer district. At issue are several city initiated hiring policies and practices the county dislikes, and in some cases says are illegal.
The county is re-opening the bid process following a city council vote two weeks ago to suspend the hiring policies until August.
