Cincinnati is increasing parking meter rates in parts of Downtown and Over-the-Rhine starting Tuesday.  The city released the information Thursday along with a map highlighting the changes.  

City Manager Harry Black said the new rates reflect "dynamic pricing."

“We can look at usage across the city, and as a result, we can make pricing decisions on demand that allows us to achieve our revenue goals while at the same time meeting the parking needs of the public,” Black said.

It is back to the drawing board for a proposal to bring residential parking permits to parts of Over-the-Rhine.  Council rejected the ordinance Wednesday.  

Four members voted yes, and three voted no.  It takes five "yes's" to approve such a measure, and two members were absent.

A committee is beginning the process to clean-up and update the rules that govern Cincinnati City Council meetings.  The city solicitor's office and the council clerk are proposing several changes, and council members may have their own ideas.  

The full Cincinnati Council will likely vote Wednesday to let a residential parking permit program move forward in parts of Over-the-Rhine.  The Neighborhoods Committee approved the proposal Monday.

Transportation and Engineering Director Michael Moore described how it will be implemented.

Only two Cincinnati council members publicly commented Wednesday on the city manager's deal with former Mahogany's restaurant owner Liz Rogers.  

Rogers is getting part of her debt with the city forgiven and a monthly repayment plan for the rest.  She will repay $100,000 to the city.   She closed Mahogany’s at The Banks last August after the landlord found her in default on her lease.
