The Ohio Supreme Court recently heard arguments for and against a law which says it’s illegal for cities to require public employees to live within municipal limits. Cities like Lima, Cleveland and Akron say if the state law is upheld it will have disastrous public policy ramifications. They also say the law violates the Ohio Constitution which states that cities have the right to “home rule.” We’ll talk to people on both sides of the issue: If the law is upheld, how would it impact cites like Cleveland and Akron? Would it mean an end to those communities’ middle class neighborhoods? Monday at 9 on 90.3.
