Credit City of Cincinnati

Cincinnati Council is reducing the number of high-level employees who are required to live in the city.  The group approved the change Wednesday by a 6-2 vote.

The director of the Metropolitan Sewer District will not get an exemption from the city's requirement that he live within Cincinnati city limits.

Mary Rivers with Over-the-Rhine Community Housing says she's still concerned with that part.
