For weeks, Cincinnati City Manager Harry Black and Mayor John Cranley have been involved in a very public dispute about the city manager's future as a city employee. How did we get here? WVXU’s City Hall reporter Jay Hanselman breaks it all down with a timeline of events.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley presents the State of the City; major changes could be in store for city council over the next four years; a dispute with HUD over conditions at the Alms Hill Apartments could displace dozens of tenants; Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune identifies the county's infrastructure priorities; and Music Hall re-opens this weekend after a $143-million renovation.

Cincinnati and Hamilton County are discussing changing the way the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) does business, transferring day-to-day operations to a five-member citizens board. The Cincinnati Fraternal Order of Police voted "no confidence" in Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters. And the police union plans to take a second vote on whether or not to participate in the Collaborative Agreement review and refresh process.

President Trump was in Cincinnati Wednesday for a speech on rebuilding America's waterways. The Kroger Company announced plans to build a mixed-use project downtown, which will include the first grocery store the company has had downtown since 1969. And Cincinnati City Council looks at the city's budget and funding for the second year of the streetcar.

Last Friday Cincinnati leaders announced a proposal to review and refresh the city's Collaborative Agreement, negotiated in 2002. The agreement was put in place following the civil unrest in 2001, after a white Cincinnati police officer, Stephen Roach, shot and killed Timothy Thomas, a 19-year-old, unarmed African-American.

Let me get this out of the way first: I've been listening to public broadcasting for 40-plus years, and I would write this column whether or not I work for Cincinnati Public Radio and WVXU-FM now.

Nobody welcomes public broadcasting fundraising drives, which interrupt our favorite formats, but Maryanne Zeleznik and Jay Hanselman do it better than anyone else I've heard. They truly put the most fun into fundraising, of all the Cincinnati non-commercial stations.
