Plans for more solar on city building rooftops in Cincinnati are looking up this year.
Director of the Office of Environment and Sustainability Larry Falkin says the city laid low in 2013 because the value of renewable energy credits was down and some state programs expired. "We think we're back in a situation where the economics work now and we have projects that we're working on and we hope to be able to announce them in the near future."
Falkin says the announcement could come in the next two to three months.
A newspaper report last weekend suggested Cincinnati officials allowed the federal government to quietly decertify a flood levee protecting Lunken Airport and nearby homes and businesses without telling city council or the affected property owners.
But testimony from city officials and documents suggest the process was anything but quiet. Council's Budget and Finance Committee heard about the Lunken flood levee during a meeting last Tuesday.
Three members of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) board have resigned.
Jim Huff, chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board, Larry Savage, vice chairman of the board, and airport board member Mark Arnzen submitted letters of resignation Friday to Kenton County Judge-Executive Steve Arlinghaus, effective immediately.
Bill Robinson, Kathy Collins and Chad Summe will replace each of them respectively.
