Commissioner Monzel moves to stop MSD funds from going to support the Streetcar

COAST allies in streetcar fight abound

In August, COAST asked the City for records showing the costs associated witht he streetcar for relocation of facilities of Cincinnati Water Works, Metropolitan Sewer District and Duke Energy. As a result, the Cincinnati Business Courier ran this story.
What the story revealed was that the City was pushing for MSD to shoulder a share of the costs associated with the Streetcar construction between $2 million and $3 million.

Please call Chris Monzel's office at 946-4410 to thank him for this important initiative and call Commissioners Hartmann (946-4405) and Portune (946-4401) asking that they support the Monzel resolution.

A vote on September 26th is expected.

    Unfair. County residents should be forced to subsidize our streetcar, they just shouldn't be allowed to comment on it.

  2. We are very disappointed in this development. Everyone should have to pay for the streetcar!
