I am the Chair of the Cincinnati Bar Association Local Government Law Committee.  The Committee meets once a month and consists of lawyers who work with city, county, and other local government bodies.  We discuss topics relevant to local governments, such as eminent domain, zoning, local taxes, public records law, and public employment law.

We also host an annual Continuing Legal Education course.  Our seminar this year will take place on Friday, October 16th at the CBA offices at 225 E. 6th Street downtown.  More information is available at http://www.cincybar.org/calendar/2015-10/4945.

This year, we are focusing on three important and timely topics.  Our first presentation will focus on recent developments in public records and open meetings law.  We will then have a panel discussion entitled, “The Heroin Epidemic’s Impact on Local Governments.”  We have assembled a fantastic panel with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience.  Finally, we will discuss recent changes Ohio enacted to municipal income taxes.  

I hope to see many familiar faces at the CLE.
