On March 29, 2016 a town hall meeting was held by Councilwoman Yvette Simpson and State Rep. Denise Driehaus to discuss the issues of prostitution, human trafficking, and homelessness. A task force was formed with residents of Carthage, Hartwell, and Roselawn. The initial phase of the program has begun. Support is coming from the police, the City, and other support organizations such as the Salvation Army and Off the Streets Now. We are asked to continue calling in what we see in the neighborhood: District Police 513-569-8600. Officers Campbell or Edwards would be great to speak with.
Helpful things to report when observing trafficking:
- ID of the people involved (hair color, skin color, height, age, etc.)
- Location & activity (what happened and where)
- License plates (if possible)
The City’s Human Trafficking Hotline is 513-800-1863.
Thanks to all of our friends and neighbors who came out to enjoy some great food, music, dancing and games at last night’s Carthage Night Out! We love getting together with our neighborhood! Check out more photos here!
Need to request special garbage pick-up? Want to report graffiti or a pothole? Need to check on dates for trash collection?
There’s an app for that.
Get involved and help keep your neighborhood clean, safe and vibrant!
The upgraded Fix it Cincy! app allows users greater access to various Cincinnati government departments such as Transportation & Engineering, Buildings & Inspections, and Health, but the focus remains on Public Services. Now, service requests filed using the app go directly into the City’s Customer Service Request (CSR) system.
Some of the other unique features of the app include:
- A modern, streamlined user interface – making it easier to submit customer service requests;
- Improved GPS mapping, including map based selection of service location;
- The ability to easily upload a photo along with customer service requests; and
- A new survey tool allowing the City to regularly gain feedback on work quality (coming soon).
Users can also schedule a bulk-item trash pickup; report a pothole; receive in-app notifications when a service request has been completed; share completed service requests on Facebook; and add trash and recycling service dates to their calendar.
“Smartphones have transformed the way we live our lives so it is imperative we adapt the latest technologies to make it easier to engage our citizens and solve problems,” said City Manager Harry Black. “This is all part of our plan to make Cincinnati the best managed city in America.”
