Hamilton County and the Bengals have a reached a deal that could pave the way for luring General Electric to the Banks.
The county announced Thursday the Bengals have agreed to waive height restrictions that would've halted a office space large enough to house General Electric's new Southwest Ohio Global Operations headquarters and a planned apartment building in exchange for six items.
Commissioner Greg Hartmann says the deal will allow the county and city to aggressively bid for GE.
Hamilton County Commissioners could take the first steps Wednesday toward balancing the stadium fund for the next five years.
The plan is much the same as last year, but involves a different bank and a three-year deal. Essentially the board would take out an insurance policy with PNC Bank to cover the bulk of the debt and fund what's left from county reserves.
