Hamilton County will go to federal court to try to settle a dispute with the city of Cincinnati over hiring practices for a massive Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) project.
Commission president Chris Monzel said the county will file its suit next week in U.S. District Court here.
"We're going to ask the court to weigh in on the relationship between the city and the county, particuarly on procurement issues,'' Monzel said.
The county owns MSD, but the city of Cincinnati operates it.
At issue is whether the county or the city gets to set policy for MSD.
