P.G. Sittenfeld

Mayor Mark Mallory used some parliamentary wrangling at Wednesday's Cincinnati Council meeting to successfully knock down an attempt to repeal the city's controversial parking lease agreement.

Council member P.G. Sittenfeld, a Democrat, came into the council meeting believing he had five votes to scuttle the agreement, which city manager Milton Dohoney signed Monday.

Cincinnati Council could soon pass an ordinance requiring most city landlords to replace the smoke detectors in their rental units.  

Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls and Council Member P.G. Sittenfeld are holding a press conference Tuesday morning to discuss the proposed legislation.  

It would require all rental properties in the city to be equipped with photoelectric smoke detectors.  Sittenfeld said estimates show 90 percent of all households right now have an ionization detector.
