Acting Cincinnati City Manager Patrick Duhaney has released his proposal to close a $32 million general fund budget deficit for the fiscal year that starts July 1.  

At this time last year, state lawmakers were in the midst of creating a two year budget with a deficit that was more than a half a billion dollars. It’s a different situation this year, but for the second month in a row, personal income tax collections came in at a rate lower than expected.

Hamilton County commissioners have an eye on decreased state aid and unfunded mandates as they craft the 2018 budget. Board President Todd Portune wants to take a deep dive next year but is already identifying some numbers.
