Mayoral candidate John Cranley, along with several city council members and candidates, are calling on the Port Authority to put an end to the city's parking lease deal based on a memo from the city's parking lease consultant that says the costs will be excessive.
The June 20 memo, from Walker Parking Consultants, was delivered to the city administration the day before City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr. signed an agreement with the Port Authority to lease out the city's metered and garage parking to private companies.

Cincinnati officials Monday signed a contract for construction work on the city's controversial streetcar system.
The action means Cincinnati-based Messer Construction and two other firms can proceed with the project. That includes ordering materials, and beginning track construction, plus the power system, the stations and a maintenance and operation facility located at Race and Henry Streets.
The city says the system could be ready for passengers on September 15, 2016.
