Cincinnati’s Park system is getting more national recognition in “The Trust for Public Land’s ParkScore” index released Wednesday.

Cincinnati City Manager Harry Black formally presented his plan to Council Monday to increase the city's debt to pave more city streets and upgrade the city's aging vehicle fleet.  It was part of the budget plan released last week.  

The city's financial advisor, Davenport and Company, said the “Capital Acceleration Program” makes sense.  Representative David Rose said the city can handle the additional debt.

Cincinnati's city manager says changes are coming to the city's valet parking program.  Harry Black says in a memo starting July 1, valet operators will be required to pay for parking meter charges in their operating zones.  Currently they're not paying the meters. 

Valet operators will be invoiced quarterly for these charges.  In addition, the city will start charging a valet permit fee for such services, but that rate hasn't been determined.
