By the end of the month, Cincinnati Council will likely have spent the $40,000 in the city’s closed captioning budget for the fiscal year.
The closed captioning is displayed on the CitiCable channel. It is also shown in the Council chamber to aid the hearing impaired.
So far this fiscal year (starting July 1, 2014), the city has spent $35,666 for captioning service. That leaves just about $4,300 left to cover April, May and June. Current trends suggest that money will be gone when the April invoice arrives early next month.
