Cincinnati Council is expected to decide Wednesday how to fund the $17 million worth of repairs to prevent landslides along parts of Columbia Parkway.  What's not clear right now is where about $6 million of that plan will come from.

A Cincinnati Council committee is expected to vote in two weeks on how to pay for the $17 million worth of repairs needed to prevent landslides along portions of Columbia Parkway. But the city administration plan could mean the District 5 police headquarters would remain in College Hill, where it's been since March 2018.

Some employees, who spend a large part of their day working at Cincinnati's Police District Five facility, will soon be relocating to temporary space.

The move comes as the city works to renovate an existing building to move entire D5 facility sometime in 2019.  The current building is located 1012 Ludlow Avenue.

The widow of a Cincinnati police officer has filed a federal lawsuit against the city alleging the conditions at the District Five headquarters led to his death.  

The complaint said Robert McGuire worked for the Cincinnati Police Department for more than 12 years.  During that time, he was stationed at District Five, located at 1012 Ludlow Avenue.

Some police personnel at Cincinnati's District Five headquarters could be working at other facilities until a new building is ready.  

City Manager Harry Black addressed the issue Monday during a city council committee meeting.

Cincinnati's city manager said the District Five police building has been given "a clean bill of health" following a series of environmental tests.
