Ohio PIRG Education Fund
The Cincinnati Enquirer

The city of Cincinnati earned a B+ from the Ohio Public Interest Research Group Education Fund for being transparent about its spending – a much better grade than Cleveland’s F.

The group rated 30 cities nationwide on the availability online of city data. New York, Chicago and San Francisco earned As. With Cleveland, four other cities flunked: Atlanta, Detroit, St. Louis and Sacramento. The study was released Wednesday.

Among the plusses for Cincinnati: its online, downloadable spending information; a list of recipients of tax subsidies; and its online help request site, where citizens can email requests for help on quality of life issues such as potholes that need to be filled.
