City Council delays confirmation of city manager

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - City Council is delaying the confirmation of City Manager Willie Carden because of past ethics violations.

In documents obtained by FOX19, the Ohio Ethics Commission forced Carden, who has served as the city's Parks Director for 10 years, to repay $30 thousand in private money he's received from The Parks Foundation.

Council is also reviewing the residency requirement that the City Manager must live in the city.

Carden currently lives in Colerain. Most council members say they support an exemption.
