Cincinnati is asking the Ohio First District Court of Appeals to hear oral arguments concerning the city's parking lease plan on either April 18th or 22nd.
The city would like a decision by May 1st.
The city is proposing to file its brief with the court next Monday and for the opposing lawyers to provide their response by April 15th.
A lawyer for the other side said in a filing they can agree with that time schedule although there is a disagreement about how long the briefs should be. The city wants a 15 page limit, opposing attorneys are asking for 25 pages.
A Hamilton County Judge could decide next week whether Cincinnati residents will have a chance to vote on the city's plan to lease most of its parking facilitiesto the Greater Cincinnati Port Authority.
A Hamilton County Judge will hear arguments Friday morning before deciding whether to issue a permanent injunction that would prevent Cincinnati from moving forward with a parking lease Council approved last week. Judge Robert Winkler issued a temporary restraining order just minutes after the council vote.
