Committee passes privatized parking plan, moves to full council vote

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati's Budget and Finance Committee passed a plan to privatize the city's parking system on Monday.

The vote passed by a vote of 4 to 3.

Voting in favor of the proposal include Roxanne Qualls, Wendell Young, Yvette Simpson and Cecil Thomas. Voting against the proposal were Charlie Winburn, Chris Smitherman and Chris Seelbach. 

Laure Quinlivan abstained.

Under the plan, the city would receive $92 million up front and an additional $3 million a year. The lease would last for 30 years during which time parking rates are expected to increase.

Enforcement would be handled by the private operator, but the city would retain control of the parking system.

Mayor Mark Mallory has called for special session of Cincinnati City Council on Tuesday.

Council members will discuss and consider the parking modernization proposal ordinances. Any appropriations related to the proposal will also be discussed.

The session will be held on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers.  

The proposal will move to a full council vote on Wednesday.
