CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati City Council voted down a motion that would allow the city to sue Mahogany's Owner, Liz Rodgers, on Tuesday.

Rogers failed to repay the taxpayer funded loans that helped opened the embattled restaurant on The Banks. According to court documents, the city gave Rogers close to $1 million in grants and loans in 2012.

After failing to repay the grants and loans, Mahogany's closed its doors last September. City records show the last time Rogers made a full loan payment was in October of 2013.

 

As of Feb. 17, 2015 the loans have remained unpaid.
