From the HERA program alone, the city of Dayton, Kettering, and Fairborn together received 29.3 million dollars; of that, 19 million went to Dayton, and they’ve used about 3.5 million to purchase and rehab foreclosed homes.</p> Mon, 13 May 2013 18:39:57 +0000 Jerry Kenney 33093 at http://wyso.org Dayton Seeks Ways to Continue Neighborhood Revitalization Springfield city commissioners to vote on gay rights' issue http://wyso.org/post/springfield-city-commissioners-vote-gay-rights-issue <p>After nearly a year&nbsp;of discussion, the Springfield City&nbsp;Commissioners will vote&nbsp;Tuesday evening&nbsp;on legislation that&nbsp;would add sexual orientation to the city&#39;s non-discrimination&nbsp;code.</p><p>A group called Equality Springfield approached&nbsp;city commissioners last April asking them to draft legislation that would&nbsp;make it a crime to discriminate against&nbsp;gay&nbsp;city workers.</p> Mon, 27 Feb 2012 21:04:37 +0000 Wayne Baker 12125 at http://wyso.org
