A task force continues its work reviewing the Cincinnati charter, which outlines how the city is governed.
Group members heard Thursday from the subcommittee set up to review the balance of power between the mayor and council.
Member Alex Linser said one item that needs reviewed is what is called the mayor's “pocket veto.”
“The mayor has complete control over the legislative agenda on Council,” Linser said. “So he decides unilaterally what gets to Council and what does not, which gives him effective control over the entire legislative process.”
