Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney is laying out how he would find the additional $17.4 million needed to build the first phase of the streetcar project. As he suggested during a hearing Monday night it will be from a combination of sources. He issued a four-page memo to the Mayor and Council Members Tuesday afternoon with his ideas.Those include:
Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory and other officials held a round table discussion with reporters Tuesday to talk about the benefits of the parking lease for the city. They talked about several things including rates, hours and enforcement. But none of the information was new. Mallory was asked why he decided to hold the session now? He says to get the facts out.“Particularly when there’s so much misinformation out there about how this plan works,” Mallory said. “So we can’t talk about the facts enough.”
As WVXU reported earlier, Ohio is bucking a nationwide decline when it comes to home foreclosures. The state's foreclosures numbers increased in 2012.
An annual study by Working In Neighborhoods finds completed foreclosures in Hamilton County rose 45 percent from 2011 to 2012.
Just in time for "Zoo Babies" at the Cincinnati Zoo, the three-month-old Western Lowland gorilla named Gladys got to explore her new home for the first time in public Tuesday.
Kate Olukalns, Zoo Wild Encounters Coordinator, says over the course of the next few months, Gladys will be gradually introduced to the other gorillas, including several potential mother surrogates.
Currently, Gladys is being handled by a team of keepers who bottle-feed her and interact with her while wearing fur suits to encourage the idea of bonding with other gorillas.
