Cincinnati has lots of unpaid parking tickets

Cincinnati officials said the city is owed about $12 million from unpaid parking tickets dating back to 2005.  But they admit only about half that amount is potentially collectable.  

Finance Director Reggie Zeno said the city does a good job collecting tickets issued to drivers with Ohio license plates.

“We currently are collecting up to 85%, which is a pretty significant collection rate within the state,” Zeno said.  “However the collection rate for non-Ohio tickets are only approximately 60%.”

Cincinnati buying more new parking meters

Cincinnati is going to spend nearly $2 million to install more parking meters that accept credit cards in addition to coins.  

City Council approved the item Wednesday.

The so called smart meters are already in place in much of downtown.  The additional funding could bring them to more neighborhood locations.

The meter purchases were part of a plan Council approved earlier this year that officially killed a parking lease arrangement the city had negotiated with the Greater Cincinnati Port Authority.

Parking lease opponents ask Ohio Supreme Court to hear case

The residents who opposed Cincinnati's controversial parking lease are asking the Ohio Supreme Court to hear the case.  

Attorneys filed a notice of appeal Monday and a motion asking for an expedited schedule for the matter.  

In June, the Ohio First District Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Cincinnati on the proposed parking lease to the Port Authority.  In a two-to-one opinion the panel said the lease agreement Council passed in March is not subject to a voter referendum, because it was passed as an emergency ordinance.
