Cincinnati residents will be asked to approve at least four Charter amendments in November, and that number could grow to seven by next month.

City council approved five items Wednesday, but Mayor John Cranley later vetoed one of them. Another two could be considered at a special city council session later this month.

Cincinnati City Council will vote Wednesday on several Charter amendments that could appear on the November ballot.

The Education, Innovation and Growth Committee met Tuesday and advanced several proposals for the full council to consider.

Cincinnati voters could see several city charter amendments on the November ballot.

A council committee discussed a number of proposals Tuesday and is likely to vote on some of them when it meets again July 31.  

 The city of Cincinnati’s 24-member Charter Review Task Force, given the task of studying the city’s ancient charter and recommending changes, labored for 18 months doing exactly what they were asked to do.

But, as the old saying goes, they labored mightily, and brought forth a mouse.
