Is City Council finally cornered?
In case we have not yet been clear about what COAST wants in the great City budget debate, it is really just honest, efficient, balanced budgeting. For eight years under Mayor Mark Mallory, Cincinnati has suffered grievously from just the opposite -- dishonest, inefficient and structurally imbalanced budgeting.
But as is explained below, the final act in the play of betrayal by this odious Council may start next week. For, if Judge Winkler continues his current injunction permanently when he rules next week, Council will have utterly no option but finally to come to grips with their unreformed, profligate spending.
The rats finally will be cornered.
