Tonight the City of Dayton is holding a public meeting to show new design concepts for the proposed Webster Street replacement bridge over the Mad River. Bridge designer EMH&T will be on hand to hear suggestions and answer questions.
Assistant Director of Public Works, Steve Finke says the bridge is still structurally sound but the replacement is needed.
Last week the Dayton City Commission approved anew three-year contract with the International Association of Firefighters, Local 136 (IAFF). The agreement includes a combination of wage freezes, modest raises, changes in sick leave, and increases in health care contributions by employees.
The latest plan to help maintain the pension system for Ohio public school teachers would have them pay more into their retirement accounts.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the plan has been approved by the board of the State Teachers Retirement System, which has 470,000 members. It's up for consideration by lawmakers who would need to sign off on it.
The plan is aimed at saving $13 billion in accrued liabilities. It's the fourth package of its kind sent to lawmakers since 2009.
