202001077 1106.MotionMOTION dated 7/28/2020 submitted by Councilmember Landsman, when residents call 911 with an emergency, call-takers currently have two options for dispatch: Police and Fire. However, many calls that got dispatched to Police are focused on citizens experiencing homelessness, addiction or those with mental and behavioral health issues. Other cities have improved safety and saved money for taxpayers by adding alternative options for call-takers and we should pursue similar approaches.

202001079 1107.MotionMOTION, submitted by Councilmember Landsman, The Citizen Complaint Authority (CCA) is at the heart of the Collaborative Agreement but it faces two major challenges. The CCA has been understaffed and the submitted complaints are not being investigated and responded to in a timely manner. At one point, the CCA had a backlog of over 100 cases, including many excessive use-of-force complaints. Secondly, new data and reporting suggest that when the CCA does submit to the Administration and the Cincinnati Public Department (CPD), their findings and recommendations for the cases they have investigated appear to be largely ignored.

201901809 2120.MotionMOTION, submitted by Councilmembers Landsman and Sittenfeld, The need to update Cincinnati's residential property tax abatement program has emerged as a key community priority. As part of this evolving conversation, the Property Tax Working Group has released preliminary recommendations Q1 of this year. One recommendation from the Working Group is amending the residential property tax abatement program to include a tiered approach, similar to that implemented in Columbus, Ohio. This tiered approach would allow for equitable funding for our schools and other critical levies; increased support for critical City services; and new investments in neighborhoods to support residents and reverse decades-long patterns of disinvestment. Ensuring that Cincinnati remains competitive while increasing equity and lifting up all of our neighborhoods and residents is essential for Cincinnati's success now and in the future. WE MOVE that the City Administration report on the impact of residential abatements on both property and earning tax revenues. WE FURTHER MOVE that the City Administration report Failed Immediate ConsiderationFail Action details Not available
