A three judge panel of Ohio First District Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments Monday in a case concerning the city's parking lease.
The city argues a Hamilton County Judge made an error when he declared all city ordinances are subject to referendum. It also argues the plaintiffs who brought the case don't have standing to bring their claims.
The lawyers who filed the lawsuit for the taxpayers submitted their brief to the appeals court Monday.
Cincinnati lawyers are making two major arguments as the city appeal’s a judge’s decision that let opponents of the parking lease place the issue on the November ballot.
In a brief filed Friday with the Ohio First District Court of Appeals city lawyers argued the trial court erred by declaring that all city ordinances are subject to referendum and that the plaintiffs have standing to bring their claims.
Proponents of Cincinnati’s plan to lease the operation of its parking meters and garages say it’s critical to solving the city’s budget problems. But opponents to the proposal say it’s a bad deal for the city and its residents.
