CINCINNATI -- Mayor John Cranley unveiled his 2018 proposed budget plan Thursday, focusing on social services and saying he would not increase parking tickets.
Cranley announced his plans in Villages at Roll Hill, where he wants the city to partner with the Boys & Girls Club to build a new facility. He said the proposed budget would reduce poverty and expand opportunities for those in need.
"You come to a community like this, where the average income is $7,000 a year, kids living in poverty," Cranley said. "And being able to provide the safety net that they need and opportunities like this Boys & Girls Club is a reflection of my values."
