0 Comments · Wednesday, April 25, 2012
Cincinnati officials are hoping to give property owners more of an incentive to clean up their yards. City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld has proposed changing Cincinnati’s litter laws to allow for a full refund of fines for first-time violators if they remedy the problem within 10 days of being cited.   

Winners and Losers

The Enquirer: Now that the election is mercifully over, we must pause to reflect on The Cincinnati Enquirer’s hodge-podge of endorsements for City Council. The paper’s slate included two Democrats, three Republicans, two Charterites, one Charter-Democrat and one independent.  

Hollan, The Charter, Berding, Finan

NICHOLAS HOLLAN: In an unusually odd mixture of endorsements, The Cincinnati Enquirer recently included Hollan among its picks for City Council. A first-time candidate with progressive leanings, this thoughtful West Side Democrat is well-qualified for public service.  

Fischer, Charter Committee, Golden Lion, Boehner

TONY FISCHER: This young, firsttime candidate for Cincinnati City Council spent the summer defying the mayor and stumping for a pledge not to layoff police officers as part of planned budget cuts at City Hall. A council majority backed the mayor and won cuts from the police union without the pledge.

We here in the CityBeat music universe just got word that thanks to a vote last month by City Council, $950,000 of a capital improvement program allocation earmarked for Evanston will go toward rebuilding King Records Studio a few blocks up from its original location at 1540 Brewster Ave. While the recently placarded historical site will continue to stand on Brewster, council plans to acquire three properties around the corner along Montgomery Road with the intention of transforming them into an all-in-one facility housing the King Records Memorial Hall.  

Check Up for Health Department

With lead paint contamination still an issue in Cincinnati, City Council might reassign health oversight

1 Comment · Wednesday, March 18, 2009
For all the recent headlines about tainted toys from China and contaminated peanut butter in snacks, public health hazards caused by everyday items are nothing new. In fact, the U.S. has a long and tragic history involving scares caused by overzealous entrepreneurs making profits at the expense of consumers while politicians turn a blind eye — until outrage builds and action finally is demanded.  

City Council's Bait and Switch

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 11, 2009
It’s a sorry fact that political party leaders in Hamilton County like to undermine voters when it suits their own interests, but now some Cincinnati City Council members are jumping on that bandwagon. People who follow local politics remember the odious deal struck last year between the local Democratic and Republican parties regarding the two separate Hamilton County Commission races.  

Empowering City Neighborhoods

My hero in the Cincinnati world of responsible journalism has been CityBeat until I read the article “Being Neighborly” (issue of Jan. 21), which contains many inaccuracies and misleading statements about Invest in Neighborhoods (IIN).  

Considering 'Life Peace Zones'

Proposal to city council could restrict access to abortions and birth control in certain neighborhoods

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 1, 2008
Cincinnati might soon be Ground Zero in an unconventional effort to potentially restrict access to abortions on a neighborhood-byneighborhood basis. A member of a Catholic order is lobbying city officials to change Cincinnati's zoning laws and allow the creation of 'life peace zones' aimed at prohibiting certain types of activities.
