Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney, Jr. is recommending closing a $34 million general fund deficit with a series of cuts and a large chunk of one-time money from letting a private company manage the city's parking facilities.  

He sent his plan Monday to Mayor Mark Mallory, who'll review it and forward it to City Council.  

Dohoney said it wasn't possible to close the large gap with cuts alone.

But during council committee meeting last week at least a couple Council Members dropped hints his plan will again close the deficit with no layoffs for city workers.  

Reportedly the manager could close a large portion of the deficit with a sizeable up-front payment in a contract to lease the city's parking system to a private operator.
