A Cincinnati city council committee voted 3-1 Monday to charge Over-the-Rhine residents $108 a year for parking spaces.
The charge would apply to 450 parking spaces in the neighborhood.
Council’s Neighborhoods Committee chose the ordinance over one backed by Mayor John Cranley which would have allowed the city manager to set the permit rate and the number of parking spaces.
Vice Mayor David Mann, who chairs the committee, and council members Wendell Young and Yvette Simpson voted for the ordinance. Council member Kevin Flynn voted no.
