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 facilities to 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.
