The Ohio Kentucky Indiana (OKI) Regional Council of Governments has told the Hamilton County commissioners it is too late to take back $4 million pledged to the city of Cincinnati's streetcar project.
Two county commissioners, Republicans Greg Hartmann and Chris Monzel, had asked OKI to rescind the money because of cost overruns on the streetcar project and that the money should be used on other area infrastructure projects.
No can do, OKI director Mark Policinski told the commissioners in a June 4 letter.
Hamilton County Commissioners Chris Monzel and Greg Hartmann are calling on the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) to pull promised dollars from the Cincinnati Streetcar project.
In a letter, the pair say that because of "significant cost overruns" they believe OKI's $4 million could be better spent elsewhere. They also request alternative options for the money's use be brought before the OKI executive council.
