department handing out millions of dollars in construction contracts--contra cts that were never put out for bid. what that means--the city spent 120 million of your tax dollars here--and can't say tonight whether your tax dollars were protected. "it's a place where you're going to celebrate family pictures, family memories and it's going to be something truly special..." that's cincinnati parks director, willie carden, introducting the public to the new smale riverfront park last year. this year--the city's introduced the public to a problem with the park--the park board's handling of the construction. late today, city manager harry black sent council a notice--telling them the contractors hired to build the park--were never competitively bid. the parks board--black wrote--used exisiting maintenance contractors to build the
using a construction contract. the problem for the city now: there's no way to know which contractor worked on which part of the project--so the city knows who to hold accountable if something goes wrong. but--one of the major problems detailed in the city the parks board city hall found--didn't have the amount of insurance needed to do the work. not having that insurance--black wrote--is a violation of city law. "phone ringing..." we tried calling parks director willie carden this evening to ask him about the city manager's report--and his role as the head of the department. we got no answer on carden's home number. we also made a house call... "knocking nats" although people were inside--no one came to the door. carden--who was appointed by mayor john cranley to lead the park's department still has not responded to our attempts to reach him for comment. cranley--just two years ago--nominated carden to take over the vacant city manager's job. carden later turned down the
disappointment. i think great city manager--i know he's going to be a great director of already is one." we tried multiple times today to reach cranley for comment on today's city hall report into the smale riverfront park investigation--but responded to our him. as we stand here tonight--the city can't tell which contractor performed what work at this park--all because the parks board never drew up a contract to protect this project--and to protect your tax dollars. city hall has ordered an audit of the city park board's spending--that audit should be finished in may. where are the city officials in this--why have they
to the public what happened here? that's a great question--and i have to tell you--i don't know. we asked the mayor for an interview--he never responded. we even asked the city manager for an interview as soon as the city released this report late today--but the city manager's office declined the interview--and provided no explanation why. but--we'll be at city hall in the morning to track down the people responsible for this report--and for the problems with this project. president obama is in argentina tonight... after wrapping up his historic trip to cuba. earlier today, the president gave a speech from havana-- he directly addressed the cuban people - saying it was time to end any remnants of the cold war and embrace change. he also called for the economic embargo to be lifted. and delivered this message directly to president raul castro... pres. barack obama "you do not need to fear a threat from the united states. and given your commitment to cuba's sovereignty and
