Enquirer's Sharon Coolidge Analyzes New City Budget


Starting next week it's going to cost more to live in Cincinnati.

The cost to park is going up, trash collection for large apartment and condo buildings will cost more, and stormwater rates will climb for a second time this year – all a result of the fiscal year 2019 Cincinnati City Council budget that was hashed out Monday.

Overall, the Budget and Finance Committee, which includes all nine council members, approved a $406 million operating budget and an $83.7 million capital budget Monday.

Council approved six tax or fee increases: storm water; building and inspections; the admissions tax, which has to be approved by voters); commercial waste hauling; parking; and a new billboard tax, which will be paid by people who own and rent billboards.
