Hamilton County Commissioners are retaining Dinsmore & Shohl to review their plans to take the city of Cincinnati to court over a sewer district dispute.
The law firm is being asked to prepare the county's case and offer an outside opinion on which government entity it thinks is right. At issue is whether the county or the city gets to set policy for the Metropolitan Sewer District. The county owns the utility but it is operated by the city.
The energy used for Cincinnati's electric aggregation program will still come from 100 percent renewable or green sources.
Interim city manager Scott Stiles had announced earlier this week that would not be part of the new three-year contract that begins in May. But he changed his mind Wednesday after five council members opposed the contract.
The name Harry T. Wilks is nearly synonymous with the arts scene in Butler County. The attorney was an avid collector and supporter of the arts.
He died Tuesday on what was his 89th birthday.
Wilks is probably most widely known for creating Pyramid Hill - an outdoor sculpture park with more than 60 works of art and a 10,000 square foot ancient sculpture museum. He also aided in helping the city of Hamilton brand itself "The City of Sculpture."
