The full Cincinnati Council will likely vote Wednesday on a proposal to start a new police training class on January 3rd. 

Council's Law and Public Safety Committee approved the plan Tuesday.

It will have at least 40 recruits and that number could grow to 55 if the city receives a federal COPS hiring grant.  

It looks like people using Cincinnati parking meters will be able to pay with a smartphone app starting sometime in July.  

A Council committee heard that update Monday.  

Cincinnati Council will likely vote Wednesday to put additional money into the city's rainy day accounts.  Those are used for emergencies or unexpected expenses during any budget year.
