City parking

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 is extending a temporary restraining order (TRO) preventing Cincinnati officials from signing a proposal to lease most of the city's parking facilities to the Port Authority.  

Judge Robert Winkler issued the order Wednesday extending the TRO until April 3.

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.

Judge Robert Winkler denied a city motion Friday to dissolve a temporary restraining order he issued just minutes after the council vote.  

Attorney Curt Hartman, representing the citizens who filed the complaint, said there are a couple issues for the judge to decide.
