Update: It appears likely five Cincinnati Council members are ready to support the city manager's plan to lease most of the city's parking facilities to the Greater Cincinnati Port Authority and four private companies.
The Budget and Finance Committee could vote on the issue Monday.
Council Member Wendell Young confirmed Friday he plans to vote yes and four other members have generally expressed support during recent hearings.
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 for 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."
