CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati mayor Mark Mallory and officials with Procter and Gamble have announced that approximately 650 jobs will be moving to the company's downtown Cincinnati headquarters.
The company is moving the jobs from its Governor's Hill location.
City council will pass a resolution supporting the decision and directing the city administration to work with P&G to assist in the move.
The resolution directs the administration to work with P&G to assist in the move by addressing P&G's need for more parking for the new Downtown employees. The City administration and P&G have worked together to identify 500 potential parking spaces that could be used, including an expanded City-owned parking garage at 7th and Broadway, and nearby City-owned surface parking lots.
City officials say the new jobs will increase P&G's payroll for employees in Cincinnati by approximately $30 million, resulting in $633,000 in additional payroll tax revenue that will help provide City services to all neighborhoods.
"P&G's decision is further proof that companies want to be a part of what is going on in Cincinnati," Mayor Mallory said. "P&G is a part of the fabric of Cincinnati. Once again, they are leading the way in the growth and vitality of our city."
P&G makes household products such as Tide detergent, Crest toothpaste.
