Cincinnati City Council

In these controversial and unprecedented times in Cincinnati city politics, it's more important than ever as a resident of the Queen City to know the score.

WVXU's coverage of Cincinnati City Council brings clarity and accountability to the inner workings of City Hall. From housing and zoning, to budget and finance and the Parks Department, 91.7 brings you the information you need to be an informed constituent and an active citizen—providing our readers and listeners with the big picture about what's going on in their local government.

Our newsroom closely follows Cincinnati municipal election races, city council candidates and all of the issues, arguments and policies driving the political conversation in Cincinnati. Here you can read the latest news and analysis about controversies surrounding corruption charges leveled against councilmembers, the ways in which federal pandemic stimulus aid has been allocated, and the ways in which development is affecting the availability of affordable housing. WVXU shines a light on the things that matter in our municipal government—achievements, conflicts, cooperation and points of contention between sitting councilmen and women as well as the calls for change and campaign promises of city council candidates.

Be in the know about the decisions your councilmen and women make and what impact they have on you and your community—whether it's the water that you drink and the roads that you drive on or funding for the Cincinnati Fire Department and the Cincinnati Police Department's newly updated policy on no-knock warrants.
