Cincinnati Council will likely vote Thursday on whether the city's controversial streetcar project will continue.
Construction has been on hold since December 4th. Now the group will decide whether to let work resume or finally pull the plug on the plan.
So far the city has spent $34 million on the streetcar project. An independent audit firm reported Wednesday it will cost anywhere from $16 to $46 million to cancel the streetcar or about $69 million to complete it.
Six Council members sent a letter to the Federal Transit Administration about the city's streetcar project. The text of the letter is below.
Meanwhile, Council is scheduled to hear public comments again on the project Wednesday afternoon starting at 1:30. The streetcar committee will hold a meeting Thursday at 9 a.m. to learn more about an audit to determine the costs of stopping the project versus continuing it. The full Council will meet Thursday at 2 p.m. to take a vote on stopping or continuing the project.
