Developers doing work in Cincinnati will have to pay prevailing wage on the entire construction project if the city is investing money in it. State law requires that rate for publicly funded portions of a project like parking garages and street improvements. But the city's policy would go further.Projects with less than 30 percent city investment will be exempted.
Work continues on the USquare Development near the University of Cincinnati. The project includes a public plaza, and some council members and nearby residents aren’t impressed with its design.During a meeting Tuesday, Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls said she was choosing her words carefully.
