Jim Nolan
We look at the news affecting Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-state.

Hamilton County commissioners rescind a sales tax increase under threat of a lawsuit. Now they have to find a way to address the county's structural deficit. Businesses at The Banks want to know when and where the proposed new riverfront music venue will be located. Cincinnati residents will be asked to approve at least four Charter amendments in November, and that number could grow. The City of Cincinnati continues to clear homeless camps out of downtown. And more changes are in store for local TV news operations.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss this week's top stories are Cincinnati Enquirer regional government reporter Scott Wartman (@ScottWartman); WVXU Radio and TV writer John Kiesewetter (@TVKiese); and WVXU reporters Jay Hanselman (@JayHanselman), Bill Rinehart (@billgrinehart) and Howard Wilkinson (@howardwilkinson).
