Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney Thursday presented his proposed budget for the new fiscal year that begins on July 1st. His plan included layoffs for 201 city employees, but that’s down from the 344 he first discussed last month.
Dohoney’s budget plan was given to Mayor Mark Mallory, who now has ten days to review it and make changes before sending it to City Council.
"Let the games begin," said Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones and Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig. Listen to them talk smack at a news conference Thursday as they announced the Kentucky Speedway's First Top Cop Challenge, May 16th, as part of Police Memorial Week.
Officers representing Cincinnati, Butler County, Hamilton County, Florence, Lexington, Gallatin County, Oldham County and the Kentucky State Police will open the competition with a two-officer team.
Local bicyclists now have an easier way to report harassment and collisions. Cincinnati has added a "Bicyclist Incident" form on its customer service website, 5916000.com. It's also on the city's mobile app, Cincinnati City Hall Mobile, which is GPS-enabled so cyclists can accurately report their location. (The app is available through Apple's App Store and Google Play.)
